Ringing on 21st Jun 2011

Mike Polling paid us a visit today ringing at Aylmer Avenue whilst George continued his efforts over at the Observatory. This resulted in an improved 47 birds processed including 27 New birds and 20 retraps.

  The days ctach was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (2/0) Wren, (2/3) Dunnock, (2/0) Robin, (3/1) Whitehroat, (2/0) Chiffchaff, (1/0) Blue Tit, (4/11) Great Tit, (1/0) Treecreeper, (2/0) Magpie, (6/2) Chaffinch, (1/1) Greenfinch and (1/2) Goldfinch.

  The Treecreeper was the third of the year and the first of the Summer, probably a post breeding dispersing youngster rather than a bird born on the reserve.
