Sunday's sightings


A wander around Ravensthorpe Reservoir today provided views of a Great White Egret, a Green Sandpiper, a couple of Kingfishers and a male Grey Wagtail. Two Otters showed briefly at 1pm, again on the 'small side' and close to the causeway tunnel.

This morning there were twenty Golden Plovers in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and all eight Stonechats were present on the Blueberry Farm complex.

Birds visible north of the causeway at Pitsford Reservoir late this afternoon included four Scaup (I couldn't find the fifth bird), three Great White Egrets, ten Little Egrets, four Snipe and a Yellow-legged Gull.
