Another morning spent checking nestboxes today with Dave Vincent being able taught by his Trainer Mick Briggs, how to check the Obs nestboxes that are scattered throughout the Syke's Farm area.
This was the second visit this year and the result was 45 New birds ringed.
These were - 22 Blue Tits from 3 Nests, 11 Great Tits from 2 Nests and 12 Jackdaws from 3 Nests
The prevailing weather conditions which have persisted throughout most of May has being windy! this is really starting to effect the ringing effort on the reserve which is usually slow during May but is now starting to drop off something chronic!
When will the summer weather arrive?
