Birds of the heat!


A visit to Harrington Airfield this afternoon provided dividends with the sighting of a 'cream crown' Marsh Harrier (perhaps the Pitsford bird) and at least two Turtle Doves (one 'purring') and four adult Grey Partridges.

A ringing session at Lamport Hall this evening provided 45 captures made up of a Pied Wagtail, two Swallows, thirty-five House Martins and seven Swifts. One of the Swifts was first caught and ringed there last year and five of the House Martins were initially ringed last year and in 2016.
