A very wet day!


Eleanor was at Sywell Country Park today and ran around twice with Tor the hound! In such inclement weather there was strangely no-one else there but the bird life included two Spotted Flycatchers and two Grey Wagtails in the dam area...

A ringing session at Brixworth Water Treatment Works provided 51 captures, the majority being new birds. These were made up of 2 Magpies, 12 Starlings, 4 Blue Tits, a Blackcap, a Grey Wagtail, 4 Pied Wagtails, 2 Bullfinches and 25 Swallows. A Grasshopper Warbler was heard singing there briefly.
