Migration on-going...


A walk around the Harrington Airfield complex this morning confirmed the presence of plenty of on-territory Willow Warblers and Whitethroats plus a singing Lesser Whitethroat and three passage Wheatears.

A Barn Owl was again hunting field margins in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this afternoon and a couple of Swifts had made it back to their breeding quarters in Mears Ashby village.

Jacob's tally of birds at Pitsford Reservoir today included singles of Yellow and White Wagtail, an Arctic Tern briefly, two Shelduck and one or two Common Sandpiper(s), and he witnessed a huge flock of over three hundred Black-tailed Godwits heading north- west over Scaldwell village late this evening...
