Ringing on 14th Aug 2011

A complete turn around from yesterday with George ringing over at the Observatory resulting in a massive 155 birds processed including 152 New birds and just 3 Retraps.

  The days catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (1/0) Sparrowhawk, (3/0) Sand Martin, (108/0) Swallow, (8/0) House Martin, (1/2) Dunnock, (1/0) Robin, (2/0) Reed Warbler, (6/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (7/1) Whitethroat, (1/0) Garden Warbler, (11/0) Willow Warbler, (1/0) Goldfinch and (2/0) Linnet.

  A really good day then with both numbers of Hirundines and numbers of Warblers starting to really increase. Several thousand Hirundines flew south during the course of the day past the Observatory whilst the double figure for Willow Warbler is the first day this has happened this year over at the Observatory.
