Ringing today


A ringing session today at a private and restricted site in the county was successful, the weather conditions causing many hirundines to fly low over the ringing area.  In total 104 birds were caught which included:-

71 Swallows, 69 of which were new birds and 2 were controls (previously ringed birds from elsewhere)
19 new House Martins
1 new Blue Tit
4 new Pied Wagtails
1 new Reed Bunting
3 new Magpies
2 new Green Woodpeckers
1 new Great Spotted Woodpecker
2 new Starlings
