The migrants are still migrating!


Yesterday afternoon (Sunday) and Bob Gill and Robin Gossage saw an Osprey at Summer Leys LNR.

Eleanor's revisit to Blueberry Farm, Maidwell today confirmed the continuing presence of the male Ring Ouzel in 'The Hill' field, very much in the south west corner, sometimes vanishing in the bordering hedge. A male Redstart was also in the same place today.

The Arctic Tern was with 25 Common Terns at Pitsford Reservoir (off the Sailing Club) this afternoon and this evening Jacob and Bethan saw a further eight Arctic Terns fly north-east plus a Common Sandpiper, six Yellow Wagtails and a Wheatear (all visible from the dam).

A few new singing Lesser Whitethroats were audible today so despite the strong northerly winds it seems that migrants are still moving through.
