Wheatear at Prior's Fen

© Mike Weedon
This Wheatear apparently equalled the latest in Huntingdonshire, after birds on 30.10.90 and 30.10.01, though a bird was at Eldernell on 28.10.02, so perhaps late October records aren't that rare.

An ace find from patch worker Josh Jones. This is the first for the pits since January 2000, which was typical winter record and a one day stayer, and is only the second in the past couple of years for the PBC area.

There are many newly-laid rocks reinforcing the banks between the bridge and the sluice, making juicy habitat for this scarce migrant.

White Stork at Maxey

© Josh Jones
This is the same individual which has been frequenting the Gunthorpe Road area since late August at least, and is believed to be a first winter.
