George was again ringing over at the Observatory today assisted by a new face to Gibraltar Point Bird Observatory, in the shape of Mike Hughes. Mike is a trainee from Stickney near Boston and is currently looking towards George to take up his Training.
They were rewarded with 27 birds processed including 22 New birds and 5 Retraps.
the catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (1/0) Wren, (2/0) Dunnock, (1/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (4/5) Whitethroat, (1/0) Blackcap, (4/0) Willow Warbler and (9/0) Linnet.
The Linnet were a welcome addition to the months ringing totals whilst other warbler numbers are slowly but surely starting to increase.
Hopefully Mike Hughes will become a regular addition to the posts on this Blog.
