May Day


Eric Graham was up at Blatherwycke Lake this morning and saw four Shelduck and three Little Egrets. Jacob Spinks and Eleanor Morrison concentrated their efforts at Pitsford Reservoir today and saw an Arctic Tern in the Scaldwell Bay, two Common Sandpipers on the causeway and a Hobby which took a martin by the dam.

An early morning recce at Harrington Airfield this morning provided somewhere between three and five Wheatears, a second calendar year Yellow-legged Gull over, two singing Lesser Whitethroats, a couple of Yellow Wagtails and the surprising record of the day was a Quail heard calling briefly on the north side of the complex.

A smart male Greenland Wheatear was in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this evening.

the fabulous Farne Islands.
A reminder that the British
Isles are particularly important
for breeding sea-birds and a
high percentage of many species
 in Europe visit and breed on our
 cliffs and islands.
