Pitsford waders...


A male Grey Wagtail was singing from rooftop buildings just behind Kingsthorpe shopping front off the Harborough Road on the outskirts of Northampton this afternoon.

The wet conditions today caused some north-bound migrants to stall and linger at Pitsford Reservoir. This afternoon and evening three Black Terns were visible from the causeway as was a Hobby, eight Dunlin and four Common Sandpipers. The dam area attracted a further three Common Sandpipers plus two Turnstones and a Sanderling.
