Neil H and I were down at the yacht club at Pitsford Res this evening but the gulls et al all kept their distance. The best birds noted was a Hobby, 2 Swifts, a Little Egret and 3+ Yellow-legged Gulls (one adult). Birds caught and ringed included five House Martins and a Sand Martin.
The geese flocks were gleaning the stubble fields adjacent to the reservoir and included the Bar-headed Goose.
