Grey and grimey!

Hello

The weather forecast for the next week or so shows little variation with grey, mild conditions and low wind speeds. Not ideal for birding but potentially okay for ringing even if the mist nets do become a bit drippy!

A little ringing at Harrington Airfield today only produced small numbers of birds with the Fieldfares staying high in the bushes or feeding out on the wet fields. We will try for them again tomorrow...

A few Golden Plovers were audible in the murk but no big flocks on the fields today.

A pair of Ravens were over Brixworth Country Park and the afternoon gull roost at Pitsford Reservoir contained a first year Caspian Gull.

Regards
