A quiet day at Pitsford...


Eleanor's forays in to the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton today provided views of a Barn Owl and a pair of Grey Partridge.

Jacob was at Pitsford Reservoir all day today in an effort to further enhance his patchwork challenge year list. He reports that it was a generally quiet day with few new birds but his endeavours produced sightings of the Slavonian Grebe, a Raven, a second year Caspian Gull, a second year Yellow-legged Gull, a rather brown-looking Barn Owl, two Chiffchaffs, a Grey Wagtail and a Siskin...

It will be interesting to see what is produced by the wintry blast of easterlies this coming week-end!

With females on eggs, this is
the time when it is frequent to
see single Ravens out foraging...

Maybe there will be
some more inland birds
this week-end?
