Birds of the Algarve

Hello

A ringing session at a community orchard in Milton Keynes yesterday provided 32 birds made up of common tits, a Woodpigeon, four Blackbirds and six Redwings.

Eric's visit to Thrapston Pits today provided views of a drake Pintail, two Great White Egrets, six Little Egrets, the wintering juvenile Whooper Swan and a Stonechat.

This afternoon there were at least four Bramblings and a hunting Barn Owl in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.

Bob Bullock saw the Ring-necked Duck in the Walgrave Bay at Pitsford Reservoir today plus at least eight Red-crested Pochards and three Great White Egrets and a Short-eared Owl was still near Neville's Lodge, Finedon.
