A short three hour ringing session at Kelmarsh Hall this morning was sufficient to catch 40 birds which included a Nuthatch, a Treecreeper, 12 Long-tailed Tits and 4 Goldcrests. Other birds noted included a Kingfisher, 8 Siskins, 2 redpoll sp and 2 Bramblings.
A good yomp around the Blueberry Farm complex near Maidwell failed to find very much with just a Barn Owl being the only bird of note.
And yes we again travelled west to Boddington Res this afternoon but again failed to pick out the Bonaparte's Gull in the roost! Eight Crossbills flew west at 3.30pm and other birds included a Goldeneye, 2-3 Kingfishers, 2-3 Grey Wagtails and 3 redpoll sp.
