Ringing on 14th Sep 2011

With the wind easeing, George was back in action over at the Observatory today with a healthy 38 Birds processed, including 34 New birds and 4 Retraps.

  The days catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (1/0) Swallow, (0/1) Wren, (3/1) Dunnock, (1/0) Robin, (1/0) Reed Warbler, (0/1) Barred Warbler, (1/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (10/1) Whitethroat, (4/0) Blackcap, (7/0) Chiffchaff, (1/0) Willow Warbler, (1/0) Blue Tit and (4/0) Great Tit).

  The retrap Barred Warbler was the one from last week, seemingly still hanging around, not surprising really after four days off near gale force winds!

  This evening Mick Briggs travelled to Boston to a book signing at Waterstones by Mr David Lindo. The book signing was preceded by a talk about Mr Lindo's life and how he became a birder and a writer. It was all very fascinating and a good time was had by all that attended.
