Images from Pitsford Res today


A quick wander at Harrington Airfield this morning produced two Redstarts between the chippings compound and the first bunker and a Turtle Dove by the second bunker. Harvesting has begun so it could be a little noisy and dusty there this week-end! On Sunday and Monday there will be restricted access due to ringing operations but the concrete track and footpaths remain unaffected.

Pitsford Reservoir and the remarkably low water levels continue to attract migrants and today Robin Gossage saw an Osprey, a Great White Egret, just one Black-tailed Godwit and ten Common Sandpipers.

A family party of Spotted Flycatchers were active at Naseby, and Welford Reservoir this evening attracted a Hobby, a Kingfisher and three Common Sandpipers.
