In quite reasonable conditions this morning a CES ringing session was completed at Pitsford Res which resulted in just short of 40 birds being trapped and released. A fair proportion of these included juveniles (please see the images of juvenile Goldcrest and juvenile Treecreeper below).
In addition a Siskin flew over the Scaldwell Bay, there was a Goldeneye by the Maytrees Hide and the pair of Oystercatchers were guarding one youngster on the flooded bank between the Bird Club Hide and the feeding station. A Common Sandpiper was present there too.
