Pitsford ringing


Pitsford Reservoir was the venue for some ringing at two different locations on the reserve today.  Some 148 birds were caught and processed with perhaps the most interesting species being a Willow Tit, 4 Coal Tits, a Goldcrest, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, 6 Yellowhammers, 4 Tree Sparrows, 4 Reed Buntings, 4 Goldfinches and 2 Moorhens.  Other birds noted on-site included a pair of Red-crested Pochard in flight, a Chiffchaff, 3-4 Woodcock and a couple of Lesser Redpolls.

Nearby at Sywell CP there was a Water Rail and several Siskins.
