Saturday birds


A Short-eared Owl was sunning itself in one of the field hedges adjacent to the southern-most field at Blueberry Farm this morning.

A ringing session in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res this morning was responsible for the capture and release of 55 birds, with Goldcrest being the most numerous species captured.  Warblers included Reed Warbler, Chiffchaff and Blackcap.

Migrants noted passing over included several Siskins, a Grey Wagtail and plenty of Meadow Pipits.  Migrants on the deck included a Yellow Wagtail and a Dunlin.
