A rather wet Friday!


Our garden was a good place to be this morning with a brief visitation by four Waxwings and subsequently from a flock of Reed Buntings, several Yellowhammers, a Tree Sparrow and Tree x House Sparrow hybrid and finally a male Sparrowhawk.

Harrington Airfield still fielded a flock of over a hundred Golden Plovers and birds at Pitsford Reservoir included a Redshank and a Shelduck. A Grey Wagtail was at Kelmarsh Hall and Scotland Wood hosted a Siskin and a Willow Tit.

Some evidence of passage today with now three pairs of Stonechats in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and with a quartering Short-eared Owl and a Peregrine there this afternoon.
