Crooked Spire 0 Birders 2


A fourth visit to Chesterfield this morning finally provided us with an opportunity of seeing the vagrant Crag Martin. This astute bird appears to be using the football stadium in the town as it's home base, and with the strong winds and inclement conditions recently it can clearly choose which of the four stands is the most protected. We also saw it briefly around the Crooked Spire of the St Mary's and All Saints church in the centre of this well-maintained town.

Back in the county and a quick look around the Sailing Club at Pitsford Reservoir provided views of just a single Ruddy Shelduck. Eleanor spent some time around the Blueberry Farm area again today and saw just one Short-eared Owl...
