Thursday's birds


Single Barn Owls were noted near Brixworth and again below Hanging Houghton today.

A visit to the floating rafts at Pitsford Reservoir provided evidence of more hatched Common Tern chicks and with two of the Oystercatcher chicks still present too. A small 'black goose' with the Canada Goose flock is seemingly one of the races of Cackling Goose or one of the small types of Canada Goose and presumed of captive origin.

An experimental ringing session at Lamport Hall this evening provided the capture and ringing of eleven Swifts and two House Martins, with a pair of Hobby in close attendance!
