Brixworth ringing


A modest ringing session at Brixworth Water Treatment Works today netted 54 birds, 41 of them new. Not surprisingly Pied Wagtails dominated with 17 caught and processed and other birds included a single Meadow Pipit, a Great Spotted Woodpecker, two Goldcrests and three Blackbirds.

Other birds seen on the complex included a Snipe, four Chiffchaffs, a redpoll sp, a couple of Siskins and two or three Grey Wagtails.

Two hundred Golden Plovers were again present on the top fields at Harrington Airfield today.
