Birds north of the causeway at Pitsford Res this morning included a Yellow-legged Gull, 1-2 Little Egret, a Kingfisher and a family party of Spotted Flycatcher.  The Bar-headed Goose was just to the south of the causeway by the main car park. 

Two female Pochard sporting green bill shields which are a result of being trapped, ringed and marked abroad were also north of the causeway.  A previously-marked female had been seen in France and Spain as well as Pitsford and other sites in the UK.  These shields are fixed to provide an opportunity for such birds to be recognised and reported whilst on their travels.
