Weekend ringing session

This weekend was the second of the Group's summer programme and resulted in 101 birds being processed. Many migrants had high fat scores suggesting there were many passing through. As one would expect the majority were juveniles, including 14 Chiffchaffs. Several Blackcaps, Willow Warblers, Sedge and Reed Warblers were among them. Below are two excellent photographs taken by our member Brendan Sheils of Kingfishers caught during the session.

Our early autumn weekend session is programmed for 3rd and 4th September.
