The warm weather continues...


Ken Spriggs and Andy Cooke were out on the Titchmarsh Reserve at Thrapston Gravel Pits today and enjoyed some good birding which included two Black Terns, two Cuckoos, three Nightingales (two showing well) and the usual myriad of warblers which included good views of the normally difficult-to see Cetti's Warbler.

Harrington Airfield was much quieter today but hosted two Wheatears, a Hobby, a singing Lesser Whitethroat and at least one pair of Grey Partridge. There will be some bird ringing conducted on-site there tomorrow in the vicinity of the bunkers and old airstrip and this area will be out of bounds during this time. The footpaths and access to the concrete track remain unaffected.
