Thrapston warblers


Eric's saunter around the Thrapston Pits complex today provided plenty of birds in the warm sunshine. Large numbers of warblers included plenty of Blackcaps, Sedge Warblers and Cetti's Warblers plus a Whitethroat and two Reed Warblers. Other birds of note included a pair of Shelduck, Oystercatcher, a Kingfisher and a dozen Common Terns. Plentiful butterflies including the stunning Orange-tips.

A wander around the Harrington Airfield area late morning today provided little that was new but one of the local Red Kites had somehow lost it's tail!

Despite no rudder, this tailless
Red Kite was just as manoeuvrable
as ever!
