Thrushes on parade

Hello

A small team of ringers led by John Woollett undertook a ringing session at Nether Heyford yesterday catching over thirty birds which included a Woodpigeon, two Redwings and two Fieldfares.

Cathy Ryden was at Ravensthorpe Reservoir this afternoon and managed views of three Otters, just a single Great White Egret and a Green Sandpiper.

Robin Gossage was a Summer Leys Reserve near Earls Barton today and saw Raven, a drake Scaup and two Great White Egrets.

A quick walk at Harrington Airfield in frosty conditions this morning provided views of about 150 cold-looking Golden Plovers but little else of note.

Regards

Neil M

Clearly the winter sunshine has lured
our local photographers out with their
big lenses!
