Out of the 43 birds, 23 were warblers, including many of this year's birds (3Js). Here are some pictures:
We also caught a Garden Warbler, but I missed the photo opportunity!
As well as the warblers we also caught a few of the resident birds namely: Robin (4 juveniles), Bullfinch ( 1 female), Goldfinch (1 male), Wren ( 2 juveniles), Blackbird (1 adult), Song Thrush (1 adult), Dunnock (1), Long-tailed, Blue and Great Tit.
On the way home we popped into Linacre, where Ray had located a Woodpigeon nest with one squab in it. It was too small to ring last week, so we went back today and I ringed it. A new pulli tick!
Not the world's most beautiful juvenile, but nevertheless, a new species and I can now begin to apply for a pulli endorsement on my ringing licence. One step nearer to becoming an independent ringer, but still lots to learn!!
