Ringing at Brixworth

Hello

A ringing session this morning at Brixworth Sewer Treatment Works was successful with 45 birds captured and released. Highlights included 4 Redwings, a Lesser Redpoll, 17 Pied Wagtails, 2 Grey Wagtails and 10 Meadow Pipits. Two of the Meadow Pipits had first been captured at the same location in October 2014, indicating that they may be trying to winter at this site which is rich in insectivorous food. A Chiffchaff was also present today but not captured.

A quick look at Pitsford Reservoir in the vicinity of the yacht club confirmed the continuing presence of the pair of Ruddy Shelduck with the goose flock, and a redpoll sp and a Little Egret were present too.

Regards
