Redwings and a Treecreeper

I spent four hours down at The Avenue on Sunday with members of the Sorby Breck Ringing Group. We started off with quite a heavy frost on the ground, but ended up in bright sunshine with 35 birds ringed including a ringing tick for me; a Treecreeper.


When we arrived on site there were a lot of Redwings around, unfortunately though, none ended up in the nets! We did, however, manage to catch several Blackbirds and one Song Thrush. Tit numbers were good with Great, Blue, Coal and Long-tailed all ringed.

Long-tailed Tit

My totals for today were (new/retraps): Blackbird 2, Great Tit 1/2, Goldfinch 1, Long-tailed Tit 1/1 and Dunnock 1.
