Another ringing tick!

I was out at the private site ringing yesterday morning with The Group. We caught 20 birds, and this number included my second "ringing tick" in two weeks, when a young Redwing turned up in the nets!

As well as the Redwing, we also caught and ringed Blue and Great Tits, a Blackbird, a Treecreeper, a female Great-spotted Woodpecker, a Dunnock (complete with a cloacal protuberance - a sure sign of spring on the way) and a House Sparrow
To accompany the ringing, we also had a singing Song Thrush along with a couple of Mistle Thrushes, and a Kestrel.
