Bathroom ringing

My trainer popped round tonight to ring the three Starling chicks in the nestbox on the side of my house. A quick check beforehand showed that all 3 were doing well.

After a little manoeuvring we managed to get all the chicks in a bag and ringed them in the bathroom. This was the first one out.


This was a ringing tick for me, taking my total number of species ringed to 28. A nest record card was filled in for the BTO's Nest Record Scheme.
