Sightings 9th Jan


Birding at Thrapston Pits independently by Eric and Nick on Wednesday 9th January provided sightings of four or five Great White Egrets, eleven Little Egrets, the juvenile Whooper Swan still, a Peregrine, a female Stonechat, a good flock size of 204 Pochard and a reasonable sized gull roost but made up mostly of Black-headed and Common Gulls.

Stanwick Pits provided views of the Hen Harrier at the east end of the complex again during the afternoon plus a Great White Egret and three Little Egrets, and the area near Finedon known as Neville's Lodge provided sightings of two or three Short-eared Owls.

Phil Jackman could see one of the Great Northern Divers at Pitsford Reservoir in the morning, again in the vicinity of Pintail Bay as viewed from the dam.
