A day of calm would be nice...!


Birds noted at Pitsford Reservoir north of the causeway this morning included a Great White Egret, a Redshank, a Green Sandpiper, four Red-crested Pochard and three Shelduck. Four Bramblings were at Hanging Houghton first thing.

The Great White Egret was still at Ravensthorpe Reservoir early this afternoon, showing well on the small side from the causeway.

Goldfinches are not the only small finches attracted to sunflower hearts and niger seed; Siskins and Redpolls also enjoy the feast as illustrated by the below male Lesser Redpoll photographed at a feeder a couple of days ago by Cathy Ryden.
