Middle England in June


Today an early morning walk at Harrington Airfield didn't provide any particular birds of interest apart from a couple of Willow Tits which remained mostly well hidden in the vegetation.

Three Grey Partridges were found close to Hanging Houghton again and the Ruddy Shelduck remains within the grounds of the Sailing Club at Pitsford Reservoir.

Welford Reservoir this evening looked spectacular in strong sunshine against a backdrop of dark rain-laden clouds and the only birds of note was a fish-carrying Kingfisher and Great Crested Grebes with stripey young. A Spotted Flycatcher was present between Naseby and Welford.
