Little Stint and friends


Visits today to the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton, Harrington Airfield and the hedgerows between Old and Walgrave all drew a blank for interesting migrants. Either they were keeping a low profile or have moved on.

Birds viewable from the Sailing Club at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon included the Ruddy Shelduck and three Yellow-legged Gulls.

Blueberry Farm emerged out of the doldrums this evening and provided views of a juvenile Marsh Harrier, three Stonechats and two Whinchats.

Cathy Ryden confirmed the presence of a juvenile Little Stint at Hollowell Reservoir yesterday (Thursday) evening. Please see images below...
