Almost spring-like!

Birds north of the causeway at Pitsford Reservoir this morning included two Great White Egrets, a couple of Redshanks and a Grey Wagtail. 

Up to 14 Waxwings were again present at Sywell in trees outside the entrance to the airport. One of them is colour-ringed (as photographed by Jim Dunkley).

A Raven was seen over Wellingborough and a pair were vocal at Hanging Houghton this afternoon. A single Brambling was noted at Hanging Houghton and a Woodcock was flushed in the Brampton Valley below the village this afternoon.

Four Otters were visible from the causeway at Ravensthorpe Reservoir this morning.

The spring-like weather of this morning sparked plenty of bird-song including Skylarks, thrushes and others all contributing but I think we have some winter weather to contend with yet!
