Ducks of Abington Park


Yesterday (Wednesday) and birds of interest found locally included a pair of Grey Partridge at Harrington Airfield and a flock of at least 200 Golden Plovers in a field near to the old landfill site between the villages of Scaldwell and Brixworth.

Today (Thursday) and the Little Egret count on the flooded fields near to Old village rose to six! A pair of Stonechat appeared again in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.

Robin Gossage has been at it again, this time visiting the excellent Abington Park in Northampton and taking photographs of the habituated Goosanders, as well as a couple of ducks that originate from captive stock...!
