Birds of a mild January!


The Ring-necked Duck wasn't reported at Summer Leys Reserve today (seen there yesterday) but a Ruff was seen amongst the Golden Plover flock there.

Adrian saw two Short-eared Owls at Neville's Lodge near Finedon and the Stanwick male Hen Harrier flew through there too for good value!

Eleanor saw her usual pair of Ravens at Staverton today and a quick visit to Ravensthorpe Reservoir causeway was all it took to see a Great White Egret, two Green Sandpipers, a pair of Mandarin Ducks and an Otter west of the road causeway.

Two Bramblings and a Barn Owl were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this afternoon.
