Ringing in the fog


Despite the very foggy conditions (see pic below) a ringing session was carried out at the feed station at Pitsford reservoir this morning.
Total number of birds captured was 54, which included 22 new Tree Sparrows (mostly youngsters), 1 female G.S. Woodpecker, 1 male Goldcrest, 1 Coal Tit and a Song Thrush.  Unfortunately the weather went from foggy to bright sunshine in a very short space of time, neither conditions being ideal for ringing.  There's no pleasing ringers itseems:)
The Pintail was still in the back of the Scaldwell Bay.
