More Redstarts...



Hello

The below link should take you to a petition aimed at collecting signatures from individuals opposed to development on the outskirts of Irthlingborough and adjacent to the Irthlingborough Lakes and Meadows reserve. Please click or cut and paste into your browser to find out more and sign if you are concerned like me that large swathes of Northamptonshire are being built on in a seemingly never-ending project to build, build, build!

Birds today were few and far between but Eleanor found two more Redstarts today, one at Harrington Airfield by the chippings compound and another at Sywell Country Park in hedging next to the bay nearest Mears Ashby.

Birds in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Reservoir this evening included fifteen Common Sandpipers, an eclipse drake Goldeneye still and earlier a couple of Yellow-legged Gulls...
