North Bank sewage works

One of my favourite lunchtime outings is a cycle ride along the North Bank of the River Nene past both the old and new sewage works. Cold clear conditions are best so today was perfect and made better by having the good company of fellow biking birder Chaz Shaw.

The Tawny Owl Chaz had seen earlier at the old sewage works had gone into hiding but at the new works we saw two Chiffchaff, two Goldcrest, a Long-tailed Tit, Wrens, a Green Sandpiper and plenty of Redshank all feeding in the sunshine along the drain.
