Saturday morning ringing


In pretty overcast and cool conditions a bird ringing session at Pitsford Res this morning provided 46 captures including many Yellowhammers, eight of which were new birds.  Other new birds included ten Tree Sparrows and a Coot. 

Some exploratory ringing at Harrington Airfield also this morning provided a modest catch of 12 birds which included an early Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Willow Warblers and a Chiffchaff.  Other migrants noted at Harrington Airfield included Swallow, redpoll sp, Siskin and Meadow Pipit, but for the second day in a row no Bramblings were seen.
