CES Ringing at Pitsford


Under the leadership of Dave Francis, this morning was taken up completing a Constant Effort Site ringing session in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res.  Nearly 70 birds were captured and released and it was with some relief that we at last saw reasonable numbers of juveniles.  Clearly the week or so of good weather last month was just the tonic to provide an opportunity for later broods of young to succeed.

The juvenile Marsh Harrier put in a couple of brief appearances (in the Scaldwell Bay) at about 7.30am.
