Another wet day!


Blimey where is all this rain coming from? Hopefully that's it for a little while...

Eleanor located the long-staying Redstart in a hedge near to Blueberry Farm this morning and the Grasshopper Warbler was still there and singing (a very persistent 'reeler')! A male Peregrine was hunting around the same area.

Checking the reserve north of the causeway at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon provided views of two Great White Egrets, two Garganey, four Common Sandpipers, a Hobby and a couple of Yellow-legged Gulls. The gull roost off the Sailing Club was mostly uneventful but the gathered House and Sand Martins attracted a Hobby and there was a vocal Redshank and seven Yellow-legged Gulls.
