That was a lot of rain!

Hello

Heavy rain today and a couple of visits to Pitsford Reservoir today located two Black-tailed Godwits, two Redshanks, four Common Sandpipers, two Ringed Plovers, eight Dunlin, two Hobbies and eleven Yellow-legged Gulls plus an Osprey flew from the reservoir this evening.

A family party of Grey Wagtails was on the dam at Sywell Country Park and this afternoon a walk along the footpath between Walgrave and Pitsford Reservoir sheltered three or four Redstarts (two adult males), two Whinchats and a Wheatear and a juvenile Marsh Harrier was quartering the fields nearby.

Dave Jackson enjoyed a trip to Iceland this year and has kindly provided us with some images from the trip - the images can be found on the Tab 'Dave Jackson Images'.
