April showers


John Woollett and team were ringing at Stortons Gravel Pits yesterday (Sunday) and caught 47 birds. Seasonal captures included six Chiffchaffs, a Blackcap and three new Reed Buntings.

Eleanor visited Harrington Airfield today but again there wasn't much on show, highlights being two pairs of Grey Partridge and a single Wheatear.

I popped in to the dam area of Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon after some of the heavy showers but the weather didn't seem to bring anything down of note. The almost resident Ruddy Shelduck was on grass below the dam.

pretty much unconcerned about
the proximity of the photographer.
