Sunny Sunday!


This morning there were two Barn Owls again hunting the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton with the village again attracting Chiffchaffs and Ravens.

A pleasant walk at Harrington Airfield this morning didn't produce much of any note except an adult Peregrine and plenty of finches and thrushes.

Stanwick Pits provided two Great White Egrets and a female Scaup this morning and Summer Leys produced a Little Ringed Plover, at least four Curlews, a Dunlin and a Great White Egret. Thrapston Pits hosted a Great White Egret and up to seven Curlews and the Ditchford Lane pits west of Ditchford Lane attracted another Great White Egret and six Oystercatchers.

Clifford Hill Pits hung on to at least one Scaup, the Dark-bellied Brent Goose and a Wheatear and the two Black-necked Grebes were reported again. Elsewhere a Willow Warbler was noted at Sixfields Lake, Northampton and the Ravensthorpe Reservoir Firecrest showed well in bushes and hedging at the Coton-end of the causeway.

Plenty of Curlews
in the county today!

...and there are still
plenty of Redwings
moving through too!
