Stortons Ringing


John Woollett and the team were busy ringing at Stortons Gravel Pits this morning, before it became too breezy to use mist nets. Seventy-four birds were processed which included plenty of new warblers - 18 Reeds, 9 Sedge and a few of Whitethroat and Blackcap.  A Sedge Warbler was caught already bearing a ring which was not originally ringed locally.

This evening, the female Red-crested Pochard was still present in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res (viewable from the New James Fisher Hide).
