95 pulli ringed

Last night I spent 3 hours at Linacre with my ringing trainer checking the nestboxes and ringing the chicks. In total we managed to ring 95 young, all either Blue or Great Tits. Unfortunately I forgot to take my camera, so no photos. Of the 95 I managed to ring 51; 40 Blue Tits and 11 Great Tits. Box 11, the box on my header, had a brood of 5 Great Tits which were big enough to ring. Well done Box 11!

There were still about half a dozen boxes with either young too small to ring or eggs so we'll be back again next week.
