Sheffield ringing - 3rd November 2012
Back home again now and out ringing with the Sorby Breck group. This weekend we went to the private site in Sheffield where we managed 23 birds of 8 different species: Robin, Goldfinch, Goldcrest, Blackbird and Blue, Great and Coal Tit.
The Goldcrest, a male, was a new bird for me and looked absolutely lovely with the orange colour coming through its crest.
