Thursday's offerings


Eleanor was out and about today and Pitsford Reservoir was the first venue with birds in the Moulton Grange Bay area including an Oystercatcher, two Little Ringed Plovers, two Ringed Plovers and two or three Common Sandpipers. A Fieldfare was an unusual late sighting as it fed along the waterline with Blackbirds. Later there was a Common Sandpiper and a Little Ringed Plover on the shoreline near to the causeway.

A Barn Owl and two Grey Partridges were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and this evening's birds included two Ravens at Staverton and a Whinchat and a Raven at Borough Hill Country Park. An Otter was visible at Ravensthorpe Reservoir, showing on the small side from the road causeway at 6pm...
