Crest Fest

Today's title comes courtesy of David (thank you David), and relates to the fact that this week's ringing session, in Wingerworth, caught a very impressive 5 Goldcrests. This isn't a species we catch a lot, but, by putting on a tape lure, we managed to greatly increase our total .

As well as the Goldcrests, we also managed to catch another 46 birds of 8 different species (Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Wren, Dunnock, Robin, Blue, Great and Coal Tit) during a three hour session.

My personal totals were (new/retrap):
Goldfinch 2/0, Blue Tit 0/3, Great Tit 1/0, Goldcrest 1/0, Coal Tit 0/1, Robin 2/0 and Wren 2/0.
