Images from Pitsford Reservoir...


Over the week-end our early starts provided a couple of observations of roadside Barn Owls in the Brixworth area, but on Friday another one was picked up as a casualty just outside Walgrave village. This bird was also ringed so we will find out in due course something about it's history. 

Yesterday (Sunday) and an Otter was again seen at Ravensthorpe Reservoir, the first sighting I've heard of for a little while.

A walk around Welford Reservoir this morning provided at least four Common Sandpipers and a Spotted Flycatcher. A quick visit to Naseby Reservoir didn't provide anything of note. A singing Grasshopper Warbler remains in the Hill Field at Blueberry Farm.

Jacob Spinks was at Pitsford Reservoir this evening and watched two Black Terns in the Scaldwell Bay and two Lesser Redpolls by the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station.
