Night Heron


A successful ringing operation at Harrington Airfield today provided an opportunity of handling 78 birds of which just eight were re-trapped birds from previous sessions.

This total included 7 Linnets, 17 Whitethroats, 3 Willow Warblers, 4 Chiffchaffs and 3 Green Woodpeckers.

Birds of interest at Pitsford Res this evening included three Dunlin, the pair of Ruddy Shelduck, a juvenile Shelduck and a Kingfisher.

This evening an adult Night Heron was discovered at Ditchford Gravel Pits by Steve Fisher, the bird was seen in flight a few times at the River Nene by the Anglian Water Sewer outfall near to the dilapidated Bailey Bridge...
