Ringing on 7th Sep 2011

Christine and Nigel managed to get some nets open today over at the Observatory but not all of them due to the continuing 15/20 mph winds.
  By the time they gave up at lunch they had managed to get 22 birds processed including 20 New birds and just 2 Retraps.

  The days catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (2/0) Meadow Pipit, (3/0) Dunnock, (1/0) Sedge Warbler, (0/1) Lesser Whitethroat, (1/0) Whitethroat, (5/0) Blackcap, (2/0) Chiffchaff, (5/0) Willow Warbler, (1/0) Goldcrest and (0/1) Great Tit.

  Hopefully our visiting ringers will get a break in the weather before their holiday finishes on the 9th!

  Also reported on the 7th September 2011 were -
x300 Meadow Pipit (South)
x100 Tree Sparrow (South)
x130 Siskin (South)
x2 Grey Wagtail
x1 Marsh Harrier
Good numbers of Yellow Wagtail, Crossbill and Alba Wagtails were noted moving South.
