Winter birds in situ


Dave Francis committed to some more bird ringing at Pitsford Res today, catching and processing 66 birds.  Six Moorhens were amongst this total as were small numbers of Greenfinches, Tree Sparrows and Yellowhammers.  Eleanor saw the Great Northern Diver early afternoon, viewed distantly from the dam. 

Birds feeding at Harrington Airfield by the concrete track entrance included 12+ Bramblings, and two Ravens and two or three Red Kites were present with a couple each of redpoll sp and Siskin flying over.

Blueberry Farm only conjured up a Barn Owl and a couple more Red Kite.
