Sunday's birds


Eric visited Thrapston Pits today and enjoyed watching three Chiffchaffs fly-catching in the morning sunshine, three Great White Egrets, a pair of Oystercatchers and a Peregrine. Steve Fisher's early morning visit to Stanwick Pits provided a Scaup on the Main Pit and six Redshanks. Nearby there was a Great White Egret, two Oystercatchers and twelve Snipe at Ditchford Pits courtesy of Chris Green.

Clifford Hill Pits still hosted the two Scaup, a Great White Egret, twelve Goosanders, two Oystercatchers, a Bar-headed Goose, a Raven and a Stonechat. Jim Dunkley tried for the Bearded Tit at Sywell CP but it couldn't be found.

Three Barn Owls and a Short-eared Owl were in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this evening and another Barn Owl was in the Brampton Valley between Spratton and Brixworth.
