The calm before yet another storm...


Another period of ringing was undertaken at Sunderland Wood on the Kelmarsh Estate today.  Sixty birds of 12 species were caught and assessed in pleasant spring-like conditions.  These included iconic woodland species such as Great Spotted Woodpecker, Nuthatch and Marsh Tit.

At least two Bramblings were with other birds on the seed at Harrington Airfield this afternoon and the Great Northern Diver at Pitsford Res was fishing in the mouth of the Yacht Bay late this afternoon.
