Goldcrests aplenty

This weekend's ringing session took place at Linacre with 3 members of the Sorby Breck Ringing Group. In a four hour session we managed a very respectable total of 43 birds, the highlight being the above mentioned Goldcrests, with 4 new birds ringed. Other birds caught this week were: Great, Blue and Coal Tit, Blackbird, Chaffinch, Dunnock, Robin, Wren, Goldcrest and Nuthatch.

Birds ringed by me were (new/retraps): Great Tit 1/6, Coal Tit 0/1, Blue Tit 4/0, Robin 0/1, Dunnock 2/0, Wren 1/0, Chaffinch 1/0 and Goldcrest 2/0.

No pictures of birds today, but here's a view of the Linacre beech woods in Autumn.

There were few other birds moving about the site, but I did manage my first Fieldfares for Linacre this autumn, a few Mandarin Ducks flying over and several Siskins heard calling.
