In like a Lion...


A brief foray out to Harrington Airfield this morning was sufficient to locate a pair of Grey Partridge and a Snipe. A flock of Starlings and winter thrushes in a field on the outskirts of Brixworth contained a reasonable total of 102 Redwings. Although very windy in the garden today, the usual suspects were around including a smart male Brambling.

At lunchtime today a visit to Pitsford Reservoir provided distant views of the Green Sandpiper still on pools below the dam and the Ruddy Shelduck and a Grey Wagtail were in the vicinity of the Sailing Club. Cathy Ryden paid Ravensthorpe Reservoir a visit this morning and witnessed the re-appearance of the Great White Egret after quite a period of absence...
