Pitsford waders


An early morning foray to Harrington Airfield provided views of three Turtle Doves and a couple of pairs of Grey Partridges.

Seven species of wader were noted at Pitsford Reservoir today with a fly-over Curlew, a Black-tailed Godwit between the causeway and the Maytrees Hide, three Redshanks, two Oystercatchers, four adult Little Ringed Plovers, a Green Sandpiper and of course Lapwings which still included the leucistic bird.

The drake Goldeneye was still present and presumably will remain so whilst it undergoes it's moult and butterflies included my first Gatekeeper of the year and a Marbled White.
