Next NBC Indoor Meeting


Well for much of the day today the weather was pretty dire! Not surprisingly many outdoor events over the Easter Holidays have been cancelled due to the consistent wet weather and saturated ground. And it seemed that the birds were mostly hidden away from us today with very little in the way of significant sightings despite being out and about for much of the day...

A Raven in flight between Hanging Houghton and Brixworth this morning was carrying something, and a Barn Owl in the Brampton Valley below HH showed exceptionally well. Harrington Airfield hosted another daylight hunting Barn Owl plus a pair of Grey Partridge. We enjoyed brief views of a male Brambling and now two Jays in the garden plus still good numbers of Reed Buntings and Yellowhammers.

This coming Wednesday (4th April) is the next indoor meeting of the Northants Bird Club, commencing at 7.30pm at the Fishing Lodge, Pitsford Reservoir. The speaker is the popular Chris Ward who returns to deliver the second part of his birds and other wildlife of Australia talk.

Hot drinks and biscuits are available during the evening, there is parking around The Fishing Lodge and the meeting is open to members and non-members alike...we look forward to seeing you there!
