Weekend Highlights

Steve Rodwell spent hours birding this weekend the local area with little reward - Wilstone yielded just 1 adult WHITE WAGTAIL near the jetty, an influx of 6 eclipse-plumaged NORTHERN PINTAILS, a Red-crested Pochard and the continuing juvenile BLACK-TAILED GODWIT and 2 Ringed Plovers (although 5 of the latter and a Dunlin dropped in briefly). All 3 Hobbies are also still on site.

On the Hills, Steve had 8 Siskins, 5 Northern Wheatears, the 2 Common Ravens and a Lesser Whitethroat. Both adult YELLOW-LEGGED GULLS remain in the ploughed fields thereabouts.
