Pitsford ringing


The last ringing session in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford this year was completed by Dave Francis and Neil Hasdell, taking down the Constant Effort nets as they worked. This provided 51 captures which included 6 Redwings, 5 Goldcrests, 2 Treecreepers, a Willow Tit, a Song Thrush, a Pied Wagtail and a Moorhen.

Most ringing sessions at Pitsford for the winter will concentrate on the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station with the occasional foray in the Walgrave Bay around Christies Copse and hopefully a couple of other efforts trying for Snipe and similar wintering and passage birds. Please let me know if you would like to come along and watch proceedings or would like to become more involved in the discipline of wild bird ringing.
