More Little Gulls...

Hello

Eleanor took a wander around Sywell Country Park today and noted a singing Cetti's Warbler, at least two Bramblings, ca20 redpolls, ca 50 Siskins, a Chiffchaff, two Grey Wagtails and a Water Rail.

Cathy Ryden came across an adult female Peregrine today shortly after she had downed a gull near Guilsborough. Please see her long distance images below...

Chris Payne completed some ringing down at Bradden today and caught some 56 birds which included common tits and Chaffinches.

With back to back ringing on Thursday and Friday and BOS Short Day Counts on Saturday and Sunday it was time for me to whizz around eight of the wild bird feeding stations in the NN6 postal district. So with buckets and bags in hand I trudged through the mud and filled up all the feeders and broadcast seed on the ground. In the course of doing so I noted a Grey Wagtail at Brixworth and a Woodcock at Harrington Airfield.

The gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon produced an adult Yellow-legged Gull, an adult Caspian Gull and a Grey Wagtail. Four adult Little Gulls flew through the roost at 4.10pm calling loudly as they flew south over the dam. Three more adult Little Gulls pitched down in the gull roost about ten minutes later.
