Birds at Borough Fen Decoy, 1964

W A Cook


This is an account of observations on birds at Borough Fen Decoy from January to December 1964. More of the available time was spent on counts and nest records than on ringing, so that it is rather surprising that the total of 1,480 birds marked (Table I) is the highest since ringing started in 1960. This may be due to the higher number of pulli (439) ringed. Recoveries reported in 1964 are listed in Table II. A Bullfinch trapped on 12th January, 1964, had been ringed at Cleethorpes, Lincs., 62 miles north, on 18th November, 1963.
