Today George was ringing again over at the Obs with limited results whilst over at Syke's Farm in the evening, Lynda Briggs and myself finished off the nest boxes. The result for the day was 34 birds processed including 28 New birds and 6 Retraps.
Georges catch over at the Obs was made up of (New/Retrap) - (1/1) Dunnock and (0/5) Whitethroat.
Whilst over at Syke's Farm in the evening, Lynda and myself ringed 3 broods of Blue Tit, 1 of Great Tit, 1 of Jackdaw and 1 of Pied Wagtail which included two birds that Tim Bagworth ringed with us.
