Harrington foray...


I have just returned from a short trip to the Provence region of South France where I helped out on a Naturetrek tour based mostly around the inland lavender region and a couple of days on the coastal Camargue. My thanks to Eleanor and Neil Hasdell for writing the blogs and to Cathy, Graham and others for providing information and images in my absence.

A breezy and cool stroll at Harrington Airfield this morning brought me back to the reality of this cold spring we are experiencing but it was nice to see at least three Brown Hares careering around the top fields and a couple of pairs of Grey Partridge still on territory. A/the Ring Ouzel was singing well from bushes by the shooting wall next to the concrete track, the third year in a row I've heard migrating birds singing whilst on passage in Northants, and there were two Wheatears sheltering from the wind around the bunkers and a singing Lesser Whitethroat in the old airstrip bushes.

Please see below some images of local birds as taken by Cathy Ryden with her trusty Canon bridge camera...
