This and that

For full details of today's ringing in the rough go to here

Although the swans have set up their individual territories, one on the main lake, the other on Fingers, they have not managed to chase off every juvenile.

The ringers have been out this week ringing along the Embankment, where alot of the younger swans have moved to (birders call it "a club").

Not all the Canada pairs have managed to carve out a territory on the main island (Fingers is similarly limited) as implied by this pair caught by the "banana seat".

The 'spit' is looking good - and I might even contemplate a "dawn raid" sometime next week. Any takers?
