Hungry Sparrowhawks!

Hello

Chris Payne committed to some more ringing at Bradden today and netted over fifty birds which included 11 Goldfinches, 4 Greenfinches, 3 Chaffinches and 2 Nuthatch. A pair of Sparrowhawk were in the vicinity.

Cathy Ryden noted both a male and a female Sparrowhawk in gardens around her abode, the male catching a Blue Tit from a suspended feeder...

I noted a Ring-necked Parakeet at Wootton Hall, Northampton at lunchtime and watched a pair of Long-tailed Tits almost completing their moss nest at another location...spring is just around the corner!

Regards

Neil M
