Quiet Sunday

Hello

It seemed pretty quiet out there today and a walk at Harrington Airfield this morning suggested that many of yesterday's migrants had already moved on. Two broods of Grey Partridge including an exceptional family of ten or eleven half grown young - an excellent breeding record in modern times. A Hobby was in bird hunting mode, trying to intercept Linnets and others with rapid low-flying sprints. A single Turtle Dove was also on show in the dead willows half way along the concrete track.

The Ruddy Shelduck was in the vicinity of Yacht Bay at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon and a Hobby was hawking insects around trees in Hanging Houghton again this evening...

Regards
