Very little to report for my efforts over the last two days. Yesterday I only managed 4 Red Crested Pochards in the mist at the sailing club Pitsford Reservoir.
Harrington Airfield seems extremely quiet and rather bleak.
There are several Brambling still feeding with a Chaffinch flock infront of the old cattle barn below Hanging Houghton village. They roost in the hedge next to the barn and their numbers fluctuate during the day. Also a Barn Owl regularly in the area.
Eric Graham reports that it was quiet at Titchmarsh Reserve, Thrapston today with the only birds of note being Great White Egret and a pair of Egyptian Geese.
WE WOULD LIKE TO THANK EVERYONE FOR READING AND CONTRIBUTING TO OUR BLOG, FOR ALL THE FEEDBACK, PHOTOGRAPHS AND ALL THE PEOPLE WE HAVE MET AS A RESULT.
WISHING YOU ALL A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS AND VERY BEST WISHES FOR A BIRD FILLED 2019 XX
