This weekend

Wheatear at Maxey
My obsessional PBC area year-listing continues, with the total having crept up to 134 (24 'elites'). I added Waxwing (thanks to Kevin "Pinky' Du Rose) at British Sugar on Oundle Road (see above shots), Cetti's Warbler heard at Eldernell Pit and a pair of Garganey at the Dog in a Doublet.
Other highlights included more sky-dancing Marsh Harriers; displaying Buzzards, and good numbers rising over the Nene Washes; a new female Wheatear at Maxey; Short-eared Owl at Deeping High Bank; Little Ringed Plovers at Maxey and Baston & Langtoft; a Peregrine; and a pair of Cranes.
