Thursday's birds...


A quick wander around Harrington Airfield this morning was sufficient to witness a fresh arrival of migrant Redwings (they never really stop moving), plus three Siskins flying over and a couple of Golden Plovers.

Jacob was out and about at Pitsford Reservoir today and saw two Great White Egrets, a Shelduck, a Pintail, 5 Redshanks, 56 Golden Plovers, 2 Ravens, 2 Stonechats, 2 Grey Wagtails and 3 Siskins.

Eleanor saw 2-3 Hawfinches in Cottesbrooke village this afternoon, in trees off Station Road by the entrance to the park at a sharp turn in the road. Two birds showed well at 2pm and a third bird was suspected...

Small numbers of Siskins were at Kelmarsh in Scotland Wood and near to Kelmarsh Hall this afternoon.
