Ringing session


Another misty start to a ringing session at the Pitsford feed station.  The ringing was pretty slow again with the majority of the birds caught being Tree Sparrows.  Most were new captures with a few retraps.  Also trapped were Goldcrest (2), Great-spotted Woodpecker (2), Yellowhammer and a rather surprising House Sparrow, not a bird that is often seen let alone caught at Pitsford.
The only bird of note seen was a Peregrine Falcon terrorising the local Lapwings.
