Pitsford WeBS count

Hello

The early onset of rain today caused the monthly WeBS count at Pitsford Reservoir to be a little more challenging! However very few birds to count and very little of note to report...

The Ruddy Shelduck was by the Sailing Club and other birds south of the causeway included the wintering male Stonechat by 'The Holly Tree', a few Siskin and redpoll sp, a Kingfisher, a couple of Raven and a Green Sandpiper. Common Snipe were flushed up at a number of locations around the reservoir, numbering some forty birds.

Birds in the garden here at Hanging Houghton included four Reed Buntings and a male Siskin.
