Becoming colder...

Hello

Eleanor connected with a Short-eared Owl twice today near to the southern-most field of Blueberry Farm, albeit that the habitat of the old seta-side is rapidly deteriorating. A pair of Stonechat and two Bramblings persist in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.

Cathy Ryden was again over at Ravensthorpe Reservoir this afternoon but didn't see the Otters which are now showing regularly. However the Great White Egret was present as was a Kingfisher.

There may well be some ringing operations at Harrington Airfield during Saturday, Sunday and Monday and as such access to the old airstrip and bunkers will be restricted. Access to the concrete track and public footpaths remains unaffected. Anyone who would like to assist or simply be a spectator is requested to make contact beforehand.

Regards

Neil M
