Stortons ringing


Ringers John Woollett, John Boland and Chris Payne were busy at Stortons Gravel Pits this morning and really found the warblers including plenty of juveniles. Some 64 birds were caught which included Cetti's, Reed and Sedge Warblers, Whitethroat and Lesser Whitethroat and a juvenile Grasshopper Warbler too.

Raptors active around the site included Hobby, Peregrine and Sparrowhawk.
