Happy New Year!


A ringing session took place at Pitsford Reservoir yesterday afternoon and this morning in the vicinity of the Old Scaldwell Road Feeding Station. This end of the year operation provided 67 captures of 13 species made up of two Moorhens, a Fieldfare, three Blackbirds, twenty-five Blue Tits, eight Great Tits, a Long-tailed Tit, a Treecreeper, four Robins, a female Stonechat, seven Tree Sparrows, a Bullfinch, two Reed Buntings and eleven Yellowhammers.

A Short-eared Owl popped up again at Harrington Airfield this morning, flushed and then in flight between Bunkers Two and Three. Other birds there included four Ravens and eleven Golden Plovers.

Adrian visited Ditchford Lane today and espied a Cattle Egret and nine Egyptian Geese.

Happy New Year!
