Warm Northamptonshire...


Birding opportunities today have been minimal - although at Pitsford Reservoir there was at least one Spotted Flycatcher still in the belt of trees next to the Sailing Club early this afternoon. Eleanor walked around Sywell Country Park this afternoon but didn't see anything of note and she covered her usual patch in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this morning and couldn't see much there either...

Neil Hasdell visited the Summer Leys reserve near Earls Barton this morning and saw a Green Sandpiper, a Red-crested Pochard and his first Marbled White butterfly of the year.

The Mute Swans at Pitsford Res are renown for their poor production rates so it was gratifying to see that one of the two pairs using the Sailing Club as their nesting site has produced a brood of seven cygnets...
