Birds of early March


This morning a Great White Egret was in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Reservoir and a Water Rail was underneath the bushes at the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station.

At least three Ravens were at Hanging Houghton today and this morning there was a pair of Stonechat and two Barn Owls in the Brampton Valley below the village. A Short-eared Owl was flushed from a small rough area in The Hill field at Blueberry Farm.

Two Peregrines were again at the Parish Church in Kettering town but for the second day running there was no sign of the Black-bellied Dipper at Sywell Country Park...
