Breezy, warm and sunny today but not great for birds it seems! Reports from around the county were limited today as the temperature soared...

Today (Sunday) and the nine Cattle Egrets were again at Stanwick Pits plus two Great White Egrets and a Green Sandpiper. Nearby five of the Cattle Egrets were later at the eastern end of Ditchford Pits plus a Caspian Gull, two Common Sandpipers, a Green Sandpiper and a Common Tern.
At Hollowell Reservoir a Great White Egret was present this morning and the Ruddy Shelduck was on the dam at Ravensthorpe Reservoir.
Stonechats (numbers not known) were reported from near Irchester today and birds at Harrington Airfield included two Common Redstarts, fifteen Tree Sparrows and a Barn Owl. Birds at Pitsford Reservoir today included three Great White Egrets, a Goldeneye, a Hobby and a Yellow-legged Gull all in the Scaldwell Bay.
