South Northants Ringing

Hello

Chris Payne and John Boland were fully employed ringing this morning at Bradden in South Northants processing over eighty birds in woodland habitat. This excellent total was made up of 22 Blue Tits, 33 Great Tits, 2 Coal Tits, a Marsh Tit, 2 Long-tailed Tits, 9 Chaffinches, 9 Goldfinches, 5 Robins, 2 Dunnocks and singles of Goldcrest, Nuthatch, Blackbird and a Sparrowhawk.

Chris went on to see a male and female Blackcap in his Greens Norton apple tree garden on his arrival home.

Michael Wood was at Blueberry Farm today and saw a Short-eared Owl and the usual pair of Stonechat was in the Brampton Valley below Hanging Houghton.
