Finches and things


At Pitsford Res this morning there were 4 redpoll sps, a few Siskins and a Brambling present south of the causeway.

At Blueberry Farm this afternoon there were 2 Woodcock and a hunting Barn Owl.

A ringing session at Kelmarsh Hall today was productive with 118 birds caught, 68 of which were new.  Birds caught included a Brambling (with small numbers of others present), 11 Siskins, 8 Lesser Redpolls, 23 Goldfinches, 2 Nuthatches and 2 Marsh Tits.  A selection of images are below.  A vocal Raven was present for much of the afternoon.
