Redpolls save the day!


A ringing session was attempted at Brixworth Sewage Treatment works today but nobody told the birds and the site was largely absent of avian visitors! Birds that were present included two Grey Wagtails, a Chiffchaff and a redpoll sp.

Chris Payne was lucky enough to witness a visitation of 16 Lesser Redpolls to his Greens Norton garden today and managed to catch and ring six of them.
