1st July


A Caspian Tern was on the loose in the Nene Valley this afternoon, appearing initially at Summer Leys nature reserve, then Earls Barton Gravel Pits and latterly on the Nene Barrage at Clifford Hill Gravel Pits but we failed to catch up with it!

Eleanor heard the singing Grasshopper Warbler between Lamport and Blueberry Farm again this morning and waders in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon were made up of the Black-tailed Godwit still, two Oystercatchers, two Greenshanks and three Green Sandpipers. At least three Little Egrets were present but we still have to prove this species breeds at Pitsford.

I haven't seen many Hobbies this year so it was good to see three over Lamport Hall yesterday afternoon and one over the garden today.
