Storm Angus around the corner?


A grey, dank and rather cold day but a whole lot better than what is forecast for tomorrow!

This morning and a visit to Ditchford Gravel Pits west of Ditchford Lane provided views of a Great White Egret, four Little Egrets, an immature female Peregrine, two Egyptian Geese, a Green Sandpiper, a Snipe, a couple of Water Rails, a Chiffchaff, a Cetti's Warbler and a Siskin.

Jacob Spinks was at Pitsford Reservoir today and three Black-tailed Godwits were late but welcome additions to his patchwork challenge year list. He also saw a Barn Owl at Blueberry Farm this afternoon.

This afternoon was spent visiting and topping up wild bird feeding stations, with more of the same in the deluge tomorrow !

A Grey Wagtail and a Siskin were at Kelmarsh Hall, four Ravens were at Walgrave and a hunting Barn Owl was again in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
