A planned ringing session at Kelmarsh Hall this morning was partly compromised due to the wet and cool weather, but we managed to catch 67 birds between the showers. Perhaps surprisingly 43 of these were new birds and there is clearly a good number of new birds on-site.
Only nine species were represented but number-wise it included two Great Spotted Woodpeckers and ten Goldfinches. Considering the number of Goldfinches caught and ringed in the county these days, we seem to have a rather poor rate of follow-up reports. In most winters it is assumed that we support both local and birds from elsewhere, but the data so far is rather limited.
A couple of Siskins were also noted at Kelmarsh Hall and nearby there were twelve or so Bramblings on the scattered seed at Harrington Airfield.
