The highlight of the morning for everyone was, without doubt, a superb adult male Siskin that found its way into the nets mid morning. Although an annual winter visitor to this site, this was the first one caught by the group and made a very nice ringing tick for Stewart. Well done!
For anyone wanting to know a little more about ageing and sexing Siskins, please follow this link to a very good blog post by The Barley Birder. I don't know this person but the blog is excellent and well worth a read.
My personal totals for this morning were (new/retrap):
Blackbird 0/1 and Chaffinch 1/0
