The Swallow roost total of birds caught and ringed at Stortons GP on Wednesday evening was 125.
A ringing session completed by Dave Francis at the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station at Pitsford Res on Wednesday evening and this morning resulted in the capture of 25 new birds including 7 Tree Sparrows. This provides a total of 52 Tree Sparrows ringed at the feeding station for the month of August alone. Other birds ringed included 4 Reed Warblers, a Spotted Flycatcher and a Sparrowhawk.
A Common Buzzard spent time fixated on the feeding station with a presumed interest in the rodents coming to the food and Dave also noted 6 Little Egrets, a Green Sandpiper and 2 Common Sandpipers (all Wednesday evening). Two Muntjac enjoyed munching their way through some of the broadcast seed!
This evening (Thursday) and the gull roost off the yacht club at Pitsford Res produced 2 juvenile Mediterranean Gulls and four Yellow-legged Gulls.
