Kelmarsh Hall ringing

Hello

Jacob was at Pitsford Reservoir this afternoon and saw two Shelducks, a White-fronted Goose, two Redshanks, a Green Sandpiper, a pair of courting Kingfishers and a Grey Wagtail.

Five Stonechats were in the Brampton Valley between the Brampton Valley Way and the Gamboro' Plantation today, one of which was caught and ringed.

A ringing session today at Kelmarsh Hall provided 86 birds of 14 species amounting to 57 new birds and 29 re-trapped birds. Finches were well represented with 4 Greenfinches, 12 Goldfinches, 8 Chaffinches and 3 Siskins. A House Sparrow and two Tree Sparrows were not anticipated!
