Neil Hasdell's visit to Pitsford Reservoir today concentrated on the Scaldwell Bay where five Red-crested Pochard could be found. A Common Sandpiper was present and butterflies including several Small Coppers and a Marbled White.
A couple of hours mist netting at Lamport Hall this evening provided only twenty captures made up of six Swifts, thirteen House Martins and an adult Jackdaw in heavy wing and tail moult and consequently only being able to fly with a great deal of effort!
