Pitsford ringing


Ringing in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res yesterday evening and this morning provided over a hundred birds which included 3 Marsh Tits, 21 new Long-tailed Tits, 8 new Blackcaps, 8 more new Robins, 6 new Wrens, 3 new Goldcrests and a new adult Tawny Owl.  Other warblers included Chiffchaff, Garden Warbler and Reed Warbler.

There were two Cuckoos outside the Ringing Hut yesterday evening and at least one bird was still present this morning.

Two Grey Wagtails were at Brixworth Sewer Works this afternoon and Eleanor again saw two Grey Partridges and two Turtle Doves at Harrington Airfield this morning.
