The shortest day...


Jacob Spinks enjoyed a good birding session on the reserve at Pitsford Reservoir this morning, connecting with a third year Caspian Gull, two Smew (one drake), two Goosanders (one drake), a Great White Egret, 3 Kingfishers, 2 Green Sandpipers, eleven Siskins and a Lesser Redpoll.

A Short-eared Owl was still present at Harrington Airfield this morning and about ten Siskins were at Kelmarsh Hall. Blueberry Farm near Maidwell produced sightings of a female Merlin and a Barn Owl this morning and a female Peregrine this afternoon.

An adult Mediterranean Gull graced the gull roost at Pitsford Res this afternoon.
