A quiet start to the new month!


Seemingly another quiet day in the county for anything on the avian front today with very little reported.

Harrington Airfield this morning was cool and murky but it didn't stop the warblers singing! A Raven overflew the old airfield and other birds included an increase in Wheatears to four and a pair of Grey Partridge. The buntings came down for their mixed seed treat but it seems that the wintering Tree Sparrows may now have finally moved on.

Geoff Douglas noted a Peregrine over Barton Seagrave today but birding from our garden didn't produce much other than adding Great Spotted Woodpecker and Long-tailed Tit to the May list.

Oh well no excuse but back to the Lockdown Chores list!
