Redstarts galore!


Another day of Redstarts today, this species is becoming increasingly more common on passage each year...

An amazing flock of passage migrants in ancient hedging made up of Elder and Hawthorn between Pitsford Reservoir and Walgrave village today provided at least 10 Redstarts including six males, a Pied Flycatcher, 6+ Spotted Flycatchers and numerous Blackcaps, Whitethroats and Willow Warblers. A juvenile Marsh Harrier was quartering over the Pitsford Res Walgrave Bay (all EKMcM).

Blueberry Farm near Maidwell still held 2-3 Redstarts, 2+ Whinchats and a Wheatear today.

In contrast, Harrington Airfield seemed quiet with just a Hobby noted...
