Ravensthorpe, Pitsford and pond

Popped over to Northampton this morning so called in on Ravensthorpe Reservoir where there was no sign of the Bittern, just a redhead Smew and long distant views of the Great White Egret at Pitsford Reservoir. Meanwhile Bob just about coped with the start of the fishing season at the pond and reward with a first winter Iceland Gull which flew in mid-morning. This afternoons sunshine produced 3 Sparrowhawk and 2 Buzzards over the garden.


Southern Region Light Pacific 4-6-2 no 34067 Tangmere will pass through Rugby on March 7th  as she is moved from Carnforth to Southall. Due in at 15:24 after passing Nuneaton at 15:04 and will leave at 16:09 before stopping again at Northampton for water.
