New Year's Day


This morning a Barn Owl was in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and Bramblings were heard in the finch flock by the large barn. A single male Brambling was in our garden again.

Birds noted at Thrapston Pits today was something of a repeat of yesterday with three Great White Egrets still on Aldwincle Lake but also eleven Little Egrets were present. A pair of Goosander were still there.

Two Great White Egrets were at Summer Leys Nature Reserve today and Adrian's efforts at Pitsford Reservoir included sightings of a Great Northern Diver, the drake Ring-necked Duck, four Great White Egrets and fourteen Red-crested Pochard.

Two Woodcock were flushed at Harrington Airfield today.
