Welcome to this new blog, where you will find regular updates about the exploits and activities of the Axe Estuary Ringing Group. Please browse through all the pages on the blog, where you will find more information about the Group, the area, and how to get involved.
The Group completed its autumn sessions last Monday, with a full day and evening session resulting in a bumper catch. Of the 124 birds caught and processed another new bird was added to the Group's species list. A lovely first winter Lesser Redpoll.
Other interesting catches, included 28 Long-tailed Tits, nine each of Chiffchaff, Goldcrest and Cetti's Warbler and 12 Reed Buntings at roost.
