I've managed to miss yet another Ibis!


This morning a Tree Pipit overflew Brixworth Sewer Works at 6.35am, calling well as it flew south. A Grey Wagtail was on-site.

A short ringing session in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Res this morning provided about 35 captures which included nine Blackcaps, three Garden Warblers, two Reed Warblers, half a dozen Chiffchaffs and a Green Woodpecker.

We quickly stopped the ringing to look for the Glossy Ibis seen by Eleanor flying towards Pitsford from Harrington but failed to locate it. Other birds noted included an adult Yellow-legged Gull, a Golden Plover over and a Hobby.

This evening a visit to Hollowell Res provided views of two Black Terns, two Barnacle Geese, three Pintail, four Little Ringed Plovers, a Common Sandpiper and a Dunlin.
