Sultry Saturday


Plenty more sunshine in sunny Northants with the cloud bubbling up this evening ahead of a couple of forecast cold days.

The Wood Sandpiper was reported at Summer Leys today and a Ringed Plover was on the flooded field at Barnwell but very little else has hit the headlines!

An extra pair of Oystercatchers were by the dam at Pitsford Reservoir this morning and a singing Spotted Flycatcher was in the usual spot in the trees next to the Sailing Club. A food-carrying Grey Wagtail near Brixworth and a pair of Kingfishers along the brook in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton indicates breeding birds.

The best birds from the garden today were Hobby and Raven and Large Red Damselflies were laying eggs in our garden pond.

A Barn Owl was sadly picked up in Scaldwell village in a weakened state today and taken into care.
