Another day of rain and drizzle...


Eleanor visited Sywell Country Park this morning and saw the long-staying Whooper Swan in an adjacent field. Other birds noted were a Cetti's Warbler, two Water Rails and a Stonechat.

Neil H went looking for the reported Waxwings around Moulton from two days ago but was unable to locate any in very poor weather.

A reminder that the local RSPB group are teaming up with the rangers at Stanwick Lakes and members of the Northants Ringing Group to hold an event this Sunday in preparedness for the RSPB Big Garden Birdwatch the following week-end. There will be events for children, displays, guided birdwatching and a bird ringing demonstration at Stanwick Lakes all designed to assist in the identification of garden birds ready for the big day.

If you are unfamiliar with Stanwick Lakes site, there is a map on the Birdwatching Sites Maps page on this blog; the event will be easy to find from the car park in the middle of the complex. This Nene Valley site is off the A45 between Higham Ferrers and Thrapston.
