The Willow Tits are still hanging on...

Hello

Birds at Pitsford Reservoir today included the Red-necked Grebe and White-fronted Goose again north of the causeway and the Slavonian Grebe off the Sailing Club. Other birds included two Oystercatchers, two Green Sandpipers, a distant Ringed/Little Ringed Plover, a Little Egret, two Grey Wagtails and as many as five Willow Tits (including two at the Christies Copse Feeding Station).

Jacob came across an Icelandic race Redwing between Scaldwell village and the reservoir.

Several Siskins and a singing Willow Tit were present at Scotland Wood on the Kelmarsh Estate, a pair of Grey Partridge were between Draughton and Maidwell and a pair of Raven remain at Staverton.

Regards

Neil M
