Wet start of the week...


With such a dry October it was inevitable that the rain would eventually arrive, and it certainly did today!

Birding in the deluge was difficult as reflected with just a pair of Stonechat in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and two Grey Wagtails at Brixworth Water Treatment Works being the best of this morning's sightings.

This afternoon the gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir materialised rather late and contained within a second winter Little Gull and an adult Yellow-legged Gull. The regular Grey Wagtail was present too...
