Ringing on 8th Aug 2011

George was ringing again over at the Observatory and was rewarded with 44 birds processed including 42 New birds and just 2 Retraps.

  The mornings catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (21/0) Swallow, (1/0) Yellow Wagtail, (1/0) Wren, (1/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (4/2) Whitethroat, (1/0) Garden Warbler, (1/0) Blackcap, (6/0) Willow Warbler, (5/0) Tree Sparrow and (1/0) Linnet.

  A cracking day then, quality wise at least. The Tree Sparrows were the first of the year as was the Yellow Wagtail whilst the Garden Warbler was just the third of the year and the second of the Autumn. Things are slowly starting to hot up!
