Wed 19th Nov

A few hours standing in the 'rough' this morning produced 25 birds, 11 of which were new. [5 Blue Tit, 2 Gt.Tit, 2 Blackbird, 1 each Goldfinch & Chaffinch].

Not in the nets we had - 5 Fieldfare, 3 Redwing, a Chiff, 9 Goldfinch, 4 Bullfinch, ~9 Siskin, a Gt.Spot, several Sky Lark, a Kestrel and ...
a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker!!

Second best bird of the day was a Blue Tit that was first ringed as a juvenile on 29th June 2002. That makes it 6 years 4 months and 21 days since we first handled it. [National record is over 9 years]
