Linacre Ringing - 10th October 2015

I was down at Linacre this morning, for the first time in a few weeks, ringing with 3 other members of Sorby Breck Ringing Group. We started at 7.15am, and in 4 hours, managed to catch and process 34 birds of 8 species (new/retraps); Dunnock 1/1, Goldfinch 5/0, Chaffinch 5/0, Bullfinch 1/0, Goldcrest 7/0, Wren 3/0, Blue Tit 3/3 and Great Tit 4/1.

It was quite quiet around the ringing site, but we did also record Nuthatch (heard), Grey Wagtail (2 flew over), Long-tailed Tit (a small flock flying around), Jay (2 heard) and Kestrel (1 seen flying, being mobbed by the local Carrion Crows and perched up in trees).
