Birds of the rain and murk!


Yesterday Neil Hasdell took a stroll around Harlestone Heath and saw three Ravens, a small flock of Siskins and a Grey Wagtail. Today he was at Pitsford Reservoir and located a female Red-crested Pochard, two Redshanks and a few Pintail north of the causeway.

Today Cathy Ryden was pleased to see her first Siskin this winter on her garden feeders near Guilsborough. A flock of ten Waxwings were in the village here at Hanging Houghton this afternoon, seen initially at 1.30pm and then again at 4.45pm.

A very murky gull roost this afternoon at Pitsford Reservoir was clear enough to reveal an/the adult Caspian Gull and two Grey Wagtails on the shoreline.
