Pulli ringing continues
After last week's Robin pulli, I returned to Linacre again today with my ringer and other members of the Sorby Breck Ringing Group, to ring the first of the year's Blue and Great Tit from the nestboxes. Out of the 39 active nests, not 38 as I blogged last week, we were able to ring 24 young. There are still many more to ring, as there were still adults incubatinhg eggs and some newly born chicks not yet big enough for ringing. Here are a couple of pictures; first up a young Blue Tit, followed by a Great Tit.
