A quiet weekend for birds


A wet and dreary morning but then a pleasant afternoon of weak sunshine summed up the weather today!

It was status quo at Pitsford Reservoir today with two Great White Egrets north of the causeway and an adult Yellow-legged Gull and four Red-crested Pochards were in the Scaldwell Bay.

Nick and Eric were at Thrapston Pits and between them saw two Great White Egrets, five Little Egrets, the Whooper Swan and a Kingfisher. Matt saw another Great White Egret at Summer Leys and there was a flock in excess of 300 Golden Plovers there.

A wander at Harrington Airfield this afternoon provided views of 2-3 Bramblings, a covey of five Grey Partridges and three Snipe.
