County migrants


Birds at Pitsford Reservoir this morning included a Common Sandpiper, thirty Common Terns and three Yellow Wagtails (Jacob Spinks). By late afternoon the terns had thinned out to a mere five birds, the sandpiper was still present and the Yellow Wagtails had increased to six. A Raven flew over and migrant hirundines were increasing and several Swift were feeding over the causeway.

Cathy Ryden was over at Hollowell Reservoir this afternoon and located two Common Sandpipers, six Common Terns and eight Yellow Wagtails...

Birds at Thrapston GP today, courtesy of Eric Graham and Nick Parker, included a Hobby, ten species of warbler including a showy Grasshopper Warbler, three singing Nightingales and two or three Cuckoos.
