Ringing 02/12/12

A glorious day, a bit on the cold side but if you kept active and wrapped up, you could certainly keep warm. I was out ringing in the rough.


Above: An adult male Kestrel. This is only the second ringed here (the other in 2003).


Above: 6 more of these Lesser Redpolls were ringed today. I like an excuse to show another picture of one of these!

Totals for the day (retraps in brackets):


Kestrel 1 (0)
Wren 2 (2)
Dunnock 0 (1)
Blackbird 5 (0)
Blackcap 3 (0)
Goldcrest 1 (1)
Long Tailed Tit 0 (2)
