I am having to rename Moulton Quarry to Pitsford Quarry. There is a sign at the entrance saying so.
It has been an interesting exercise to see what I think of the pit now some of the summer visitors are leaving, but also what is/might drop in and new birds I hadn't noted during the summer.
Now all the pits have water in them but I cannot see any exits for them into a main watercourse so didn't think any fish would be in them.
I managed a photograph tick this evening though of a Lesser Whitethroat which was bird I have seen many times but due it's elusive nature was a bit of a bogey bird photo wise. This was on the big wood pile which is a bit of a favourite spot of mine there is always something to photograph here. This image is a bit better then a record shot (don't worry I have a record shot coming) I call this a BANKER ie Got one but room for improvement, one in the can!
