Pitsford CES


Dave Francis worked Session 6 of the Constant Effort ringing effort in the Scaldwell Bay at Pitsford Reservoir today, catching 47 birds. This is much less than would be expected and appears to confirm a poor breeding season at Pitsford for many species.

Nineteen species were captured today including two Coots and a Mallard in the duck trap and other birds of interest included two Kingfishers, six Blackcaps, two Garden Warblers, a Reed Warbler, five Chiffchaffs, a Willow Warbler, a Treecreeper, a Song Thrush and a Bullfinch. The only bird in good numbers was the fabulous Robin with eleven individuals logged.
