Crooked Spire 1 Birders 0


A trip to Chesterfield in Derbyshire early this morning to see a lingering Crag Martin ended in failure! It seems that the bird was sharing the famous crooked spire with a pair of Peregrine and a Kestrel and there was no sign of it today. Oh well whilst we were looking up we saw a couple of Grey Wagtails, views of Sparrowhawk and a couple of large skeins of Pink-footed Geese presumably en-route to Norfolk from Lancashire.

Back in the county by lunchtime, some feed station maintenance was called for and then some scrub clearance at Kelmarsh Hall where birds of interest included c25 Siskins and a Kingfisher. Wagtail numbers at Brixworth Sewer Works included c30 Pieds and a couple of Greys and the Magpie flock was also about thirty birds. Scanning the gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir yielded an adult Mediterranean Gull.
