Saturday county birding


Jacob Spinks was at Pitsford Reservoir today and his tally of birds were made up of a Caspian Gull, a Yellow-legged Gull, a drake Smew, two Great White Egrets, a Redshank, a Green Sandpiper and a Chiffchaff.

Clive Bowley was at Sywell Country Park and located a single adult Whooper Swan showing nicely.

Eleanor was at Staverton again today where four Ravens were in situ and the conifers there attracted at least ten Crossbills. At Ravensthorpe Reservoir there were again two Otters on show from the causeway and two Great White Egrets. Nearer to home and a Barn Owl and a pair of Stonechat were present in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
