Ringing on 30th Aug 2011

George was back in action today, over at Observatory and was amply rewarded with 59 birds processed including 50 New birds and 9 Retraps.

  The catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (20/0) Swallow, (1/0) Meadow Pipit, (1/0) Yellow Wagtail, (0/1) Wren, (2/3) Dunnock, (4/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (4/2) Whitethroat, (3/2) Blackcap, (2/0) Willow Warbler, (0/1) Great Tit, (10/0) Tree Sparrow, (2/0) Goldfinch and (1/0) Linnet.

The 10 New Tree Sparrows were impressive and brings the total to 25 New Tree Sparrows in just two days! To put this into context, we don't always ring double figures of Tree Sparrows at Gib in a whole year!
