Migrants in the rain!


At Harrington Airfield this morning birds included a Tree Pipit, a Grey Wagtail, a Redstart, 2+ Ravens, several Siskins and a pair of Grey Partridge.

The Blueberry Farm area continued to retain migrants in the shape of a Marsh Harrier, a Grasshopper Warbler, 1-2 Redstart(s), 2 Whinchats and a Wheatear. This evening a Redstart was in hedging at Lamport Hall at a spot which has proved a traditional stop-over area for a number of years.

Some ringing at Brixworth Sewer Works today provided some 43 captures which included seven Pied Wagtails, ten Swallows, ten Blackcaps, a Whitethroat, six Chiffchaffs, two Willow Warblers and a Magpie. At least six Grey Wagtails were also present.
