Another quiet day at the Observatory for George today with just 11 Birds processed including 7 New birds and 4 Retraps.

  The Sparrowhawk was a young male and was the seventh of the year, still a long way short of the 15 that were ringed in 2010, but the years total is slowly creeping up as is the Grand Total for the year.
