Murky and damp Harrington


Little opportunity for birding today in damp, gloomy, but mild conditions.

A couple of hours at Harrington Airfield this afternoon confirmed the continuing presence of Fieldfares but the thrushes are fewer in number now it seems... Nevertheless there will be some planned ringing there tomorrow (Tuesday) and Wednesday when certain sections will be restricted and notices will be erected. This doesn't affect passage along the footpaths and main concrete track. 

The flock of Golden Plover there today and whizzing around the top fields numbered at least fifty birds...

Golden Plovers

Male Chaffinch.

This species takes advantage of three
areas at Harrington Airfield which are
regularly provided with broadcast mixed
  seed during the winter.
