Sightings for Saturday


Eleanor's visit to Lamport Hall and Harrington Airfield produced no birds of note today with the bushes pretty much empty of birds. However Terry saw a Merlin chasing Skylarks at Harrington Airfield and Hollowell Reservoir's Little Stint re-appeared this afternoon in company with two Ringed Plovers, and a Stonechat was present too.

A red wing-tagged Marsh Harrier was seen at both Stanwick and neighbouring Ditchford Pits today and other birds at Stanwick included four Cattle Egrets and a Great White Egret. An Osprey was seen flying west over Ditchford Pits and a Peregrine was on St Mary's Church at Higham Ferrers.

A first year Mediterranean Gull and a Great White Egret were at Summer Leys LNR this morning, two Crossbills were mobile in Wakerley Wood and three Yellow-legged Gulls were at the south end of Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon.

Debs and Eric enjoyed their walk around the Titchmarsh Reserve at Thrapston Pits today, catching up on two Great White Egrets, a Kingfisher and two Hobbies showing well as they hawked dragonflies
