More spring sunshine...


A little wander at Harrington Airfield this morning provided views of an adult female Peregrine, about sixty Golden Plovers and a pair of Grey Partridge.

Tomorrow a limited ringing session is planned for the site during the morning using the rides on the old airstrip. As such access will be restricted during this time but the usual public footpaths and concrete track remain unaffected. My apologies if this affects any planned excursions.

 Reservoir yesterday.

The Goldcrest. Our smallest common
British bird. Following yet another mild
winter, there are plenty of Goldcrests around
currently and they are singing well in this bout
of spring sunshine... With lots of Chiffchaffs
about too, there are now quite a few small
green-looking birds fidgeting around in the
 bushes and trees!
