Warm, sunny and breezy!


The Wildlife Trust staff at Lings House could hear three Lesser Spotted Woodpeckers calling in Lings Wood this morning, one of them showing well about a 100 yards in front of the house...

Harrington Airfield this afternoon still attracted a flock of about a hundred Golden Plovers and three pairs of Grey Partridge, and there may have been as many as seven Stonechats again in the valley below Hanging Houghton.

Several Siskins on the move at Hanging Houghton both today and yesterday and of course the strong breeze and lovely sunshine meant that Red Kites and Common Buzzards were particularly showy today. A Raven was seen between Brixworth and Holcot this morning.

The Whooper Swan was still in fields adjacent to Sywell Country Park yesterday...
