Lesser Redpolls back in the garden
We've managed a couple of ringing sessions in the garden over the past month. Lots of Goldfinches a few weeks ago but only a couple today. However there are a few Lesser Redpolls around - a flock of twelve were very adept at avoiding the nets apart from this adult male.
Adult male Lesser RedpollRishton Reservoir has been generally quiet. The Great Crested Grebes are still present with up to six and there have been a few Teal and Tufted Duck around as well as a hybrid Aythya. Wigeon have alse been quite regular but the geese have notable by their absence. May nip down tomorrow to see what's dropped in.
