Pitsford CES

Dave Francis was at Pitsford Res today to conduct visit 5 of the CES season. A slightly disappointing session with a total of 53 birds captured, well below the average for this visit of ~80. The main reason for the shortfall was the lack of tit flocks.
Great Tit 4 (all Juvs)
Blue Tit 6 (5 juvs)
Blackcap 5
Chaffinch 1
Ciffchaff 6
Coal Tit 3 (all juvs)
Dunnock 1
Blackbird 3
Greenfinch 1
Wren 3
Great-spotted Woodpecker 4
Reed Bunting 1
Robin 6
Song Thrush 3
Treecreeper 3
Whitethroat 1
Wood Pigeon 1
Garden Warbler 1

A visit yesterday to the Nene barrage at Clifford Hill was rewarded with distant views of 2 drake Common Scoters, always as far away from me as possible as I circumnavigated the lake. A solitary Black Tern was sweeping the length of the lake as well.
