Yet more garden birds!


Yesterday Steve Bennison noted five Mandarin Ducks and a Great White Egret at Ravensthorpe Reservoir.

Two pairs of Stonechats were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this morning and two Ravens were near the village later.

Today Pitsford Reservoir hosted a White-fronted Goose, two Redshank, an Oystercatcher and a male Stonechat all on the reserve north of the causeway.

Male Brambling.

Male Sparrowhawk.

It's all action in the Duston garden
belonging to Steve Bennison! Two pairs
of Brambling have remained throughout
the winter and Siskins are appearing on
passage. Today Steve thought it odd that the
garden was empty of birds, then he spotted
this stunning Sparrowhawk and realised why!
