Linacre Ringing Demo

As a group, we've been ringing at Linacre for just over a year now, and, as part of our permission, we agreed to carry out ringing demonstrations for the Ranger Service. This Saturday (6th July), 3 members of the group (not me, I was in London celebrating my daughter's birthday!) carried out one such event resulting in a very respectable 34 birds of 10 species.

The highlights included 3 Jays including one control from last year, a control Garden Warbler (1 ringed last year on our first ever mist netting session; see here) and a few other summer migrants, namely Chiffchaffs (3 juveniles) and Blackcap (3 birds).
