MK ringing

A ringing session took place at Hanson's Pits on Sunday with the following report from Kenny.
We had quite the team today with Chris, Helen, Rory and Laura (a new potential trainee) joining Sarah and I (Kenny) so we took the opportunity to try a few new nets at the far end of the reserve.

These proved to be quite productive, and combined with the feeder site produced 52 captures, 39 new, (13 retraps) of an impressive 16 species.

Highlights included 4 chiffchaff, 3 blackcap, 5 reed bunting, 3 treecreepers, a jay, a great spot and a retrap cettis warbler.

A grass snake was a nice non-avian sighting.
