Limited opportunities for birding today but a quick foray out at Pitsford Reservoir was good for a juvenile Shag and an adult Yellow-legged Gull by the dam and two Great White Egrets, two Green Sandpipers and another adult Yellow-legged Gull were in the Scaldwell Bay.
Just two Whinchats were still present in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and Siskins were still passing over during the day.
A Spoonbill seen in flight over Billing Garden Centre heading for Billing Aquadrome early this morning was a good record and it seems that the adult from the summer is still with us somewhere!
Some Ring-necked Parakeets were present in the grounds of St Andrews Hospital, Northampton today and Steve successfully counted four Common Redstarts at Harrington Airfield between the Chippings Compound and Bunker One.
Jonathan's efforts at Hollowell Reservoir this evening provided views of a Great White Egret, two juvenile Ruff and a Whinchat.
Malaki the African Grey Parrot has been located and recaptured and safely back in his Earls Barton home!!
