Wren pulli at Linacre
Back at the start of June I blogged about a Wren's nest in one of the nest boxes at Linacre. It had 5 eggs in it, and soon after, 3 pulli hatched.
On 18th June, I checked the box again, and found that the 3 pulli were now big enough to ring.
Wren pullus (1 of 3 ringed)
I'm very pleased with this record, because, not only are they the first Wren pulli I've ever ringed, but they also constitute the first successful use of a nest box by this species at Linacre. The record has been sent off to the BTO's Nest Record Scheme.
