New site and 2 new ringing ticks.

I went out with my ringing trainer and two other ringers from the Sorby Breck Ringing Group this morning and visited a new site for me, Baslow Water Treatment Works (yes, that is  a posh name for a sewage works!)

The weather was very grey and misty and, despite a good 3 hour stint, we only managed to catch and ring 4 birds of 2 species! Luckily for me, the two species caught (Grey and Pied Wagtail) were "ringing ticks" and the others in the group very kindly let me ring 2 of the 4 birds caught. Thank you very much!!
