VE Day


Another day of stunning weather, and very befitting VE Day! I think for many in Northants the high point of the day was the visit to the county of the Red Arrows on their way back from the fly-past over London!

Birdwise the Wood Sandpiper remained at Summer Leys reserve today, spending at least some of it's time in Wader Bay. Elsewhere there was a 'reeling' Grasshopper Warbler at Blueberry Farm, Maidwell and Salcey Forest hosted two Spotted Flycatchers and a Cuckoo.

Our list for birds recorded from the garden for May is 44 with no additions today.
