Blustery Wednesday


A calling Snow Bunting flushed up in the Brampton Valley at 7.45am this morning, from a 'scuffed' field between Hanging Houghton and Gamboro' Plantation.

A visit to Harrington Airfield at lunchtime provided only a handful of thrushes but three Hawfinches were in bushes by the third bunker and a Woodcock flushed up from between the second and third bunkers.

The reserve section of Pitsford Reservoir continued to provide a haven for two Great White Egrets and a 'redhead' Smew, these Pitsford sightings courtesy of Neil Hasdell.

Finally a Barn Owl was in roadside hedging this evening between Brixworth and Scaldwell villages.
