Ringing at Brixworth


A ringing session at Brixworth water treatment works this afternoon was a little slow but we eventually caught 37 birds which included 14 Pied Wagtails, a female Yellow Wagtail, a juvenile Grey Wagtail, a House Martin (which was a returning bird from 2014), 12 Swallows (including a bird first ringed in Hertfordshire in August 2015) and 4 Magpies...

A Hobby was one of five species of raptor noted during our time there.

Pied Wagtails.

Quite a number of the
Pied Wagtails we are catching
are juveniles and there seems
 to be plenty of them!
