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.

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.
