Middle of June already!

Hello

A pair of scruffy Ravens was about all Eleanor could find at Blueberry Farm today and an evening stroll at Harrington Airfield was good enough to see a pair or two of Grey Partridge and hearing a 'purring' Turtle Dove...

A couple of days ago Dave Francis checked the tern rafts at Pitsford Reservoir and the Common Tern nest count has now increased to 51 which is a very good effort. Last year was very productive after a couple of very lean years so we are hoping for more breeding success in 2017.

Regards

Yes it really is a Blue Tit, well what's left of it!
Adult female Blue Tits have a very hard time
during the breeding season with an astonishing
work rate...
