The local Starlings have been very successful with 100's of birds, the vast majority being newly fledged, feeding out on the Ellington Girls School playing field, however summer migrants remain very scarce. A Blackcap is holding territory around the garden of Newland's Farm but there are no Whitethroats to be found and the Swallows, which use the tractor shed, have yet to appear! Swifts are sporadically seen, high overhead, but not in any numbers. This crazy weather appears to have had a catastrophic effect on our local wildlife.
