Avenue Ringing - 1st June 2013
Out this morning to the DWT's Avenue Washlands with the guys from the Sorby Breck Group for a few hours. The ringing was quiet with just 14 birds ringed, but it was nice to be out again and we were treated to our first Robin and Great Tit pulli/juveniles of the year, a new ringing tick for the site, MistleThrush, and to a great sighting when a Great White Egret flew up out of the reedbeds!!! This is still a pretty uncommon bird here in Derbyshire, a first for the site, and my first county record, so I sent the record off to the Derbyshire Ornithological Society.
Birds ringed today were: Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Wren, Goldfinch, Mistle Thrush, Great Tit, BlueTit and Robin.
