Waxwings at Hanging Houghton.


A little ringing in Christies Copse at Pitsford Reservoir this morning provided 87 captures made up of 5 Long-tailed Tits, 16 Great Tits, 49 Blue Tits, 5 Coal Tits, 6 Robins, a Dunnock and 5 Chaffinches. A Willow Tit was attracted to the feeders there and other birds seen in the Walgrave Bay included two Great White Egrets and a couple of Bramblings.

Hanging Houghton village was again host to a flock of Waxwings this morning but the mobile flock of 14 birds were not seen after about 1.15pm. A male Brambling was in the garden and a pair of Stonechat were again below the village in the Brampton Valley.
