Pitsford Ringing


Visit 11 of the Pitsford Reservoir Constant Effort ringing session took place today with an excellent catch of 68 birds of 23 different species. Warblers included 7 Blackcaps, 5 Chiffchaffs, 4 Willow Warblers, 4 Reed Warblers, 4 Whitethroats and a Garden Warbler. A Spotted Flycatcher was a rare capture and good local birds included 2 Kingfishers, a Willow Tit, 2 Marsh Tits and a re-trap Tawny Owl which is at least 12 years old.

The Ardnamurchan Peninsular has enjoyed good weather the last two days and with Pine Martens active on both evenings at Glenborrodale...
