Monday's musings


Yesterday Eric Graham located the Great White Egret at Thrapston GP again, which was spending most of its time on the Aldwincle Lake. Other birds included 5 Goosanders, 7 Lesser Redpolls and 12 Siskins.

The Siskin-fest continues at Astcote with more birds caught by John Woollett both yesterday and today. Although there were some re-traps from the week, many were new birds and another 'control' was processed too.

A newly constructed pond near Haselbech attracted a pair of Oystercatcher today and birds at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell included a pair of Stonechat and three Barn Owls. At least eight Reed Buntings remain in our garden here at Hanging Houghton, broadcast seed also attracting a couple of Yellowhammers.

Breeding is just around the corner
