Quiet wet day


Pretty miserable weather today, but a wander at Harrington Airfield this morning before the worst of the weather hit was useful simply to assess that it was pretty quiet up there. The only visible migration were a couple of large flocks of Starlings flying low and fast in a south-westerly direction and small numbers of thrushes and finches moving against the southerly breeze, which included several redpoll sp and Siskin.

This afternoon a Barn Owl and two Stonechats were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and the gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir (off the dam and Sailing Club) contained a first winter Mediterranean Gull and four Yellow-legged Gulls.
