Stunning birds of winter...


Yesterday the transient Nene Valley White-fronted Goose flock turned up over the Summer Leys reserve near Earls Barton as photographed by Steve Bennison.

The Waxwings at Roade showed superbly yesterday as captured by Robin Gossage, but all the indications are that they have now gone with no reported sightings today.

Pitsford Reservoir was visited by John Moon and Neil Hasdell today and between them they saw the Slavonian Grebe near to the Holly Tree, a Great White Egret, two Green Sandpipers, a Redshank, a Chiffchaff and a Grey Wagtail.

Two Ravens were over Brixworth Country Park this morning and the pair of Stonechat remain in the valley below Hanging Houghton and Short-eared Owls continue to show well near Neville's Lodge south of Finedon.
