Hobbies, Barn Owls, waders and more


Very similar weather to the last few days, it was again bright and breezy today!

A Barn Owl was out hunting near Old this morning and the early shift at Stanwick Pits provided news of a Whimbrel on the islands of the Layby Pit and a couple of Dunlin on the Main Pit. Summer Leys hosted two drake Garganey, a Black-tailed Godwit, two Redshanks, two Little Ringed Plovers, a Hobby, Shelduck and Egyptian Geese.

Thrapston Pits provided a super sight of 14 Hobbies hawking over the Titchmarsh Reserve this morning plus a Cuckoo and the Oystercatcher family.

A Barn Owl was hunting in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton this morning and two Spotted Flycatchers were at Beck Dairy, Cottesbrooke. Two Ravens overflew the garden but didn't linger.
