Sunday's birds...


Barn Owls visible and out hunting early this morning included singles near Spratton, near the A508 between Hanging Houghton and Brixworth, in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton and near Scaldwell village.

A ringing session in Sunderland Wood on the Kelmarsh Estate today netted 76 birds of 10 species, made up of 30 Blue Tits, 14 Great Tits, 9 Coal Tits, a Nuthatch, 4 Treecreepers, 3 Goldcrests, 7 Chaffinches, 4 Redwings, 3 Robins and a Wren. Other birds seen in the wood included a Woodcock and a few Siskins.

Spending time in the vicinity of the dam at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon until dusk provided views of the Red-necked Grebe, a Green Sandpiper and a Kingfisher.
