Starlings ringed

When I got back from Scotland yesterday I could hear that the Starling chicks in the nestbox on the side of my house were in very good voice. I had a quick check, and realised that they were ready to be ringed. I got the rings from Ray, and ringed all 5 this evening.

As always, the ring numbers will be registered with the BTO, so if, and hopefully when, the birds fledge and are re sighted we will be able to follow their progress. Details will also be added to the BTO's Nestbox Record Scheme.
