Pitsford Ringing


Ringers at Pitsford Res operating in the Scaldwell Bay were busy this morning in very warm conditions. Some 95 birds were caught and included nearly 30 warblers and many juvenile tits, which is something of a relief after last year's poor breeding season.  A juvenile Grasshopper Warbler was probably the bird of the session, and with no regular singing birds on site this year it is likely to be an early migrant passing through.

My thanks to Dave Francis for providing this update.
