Recent catch and pulli update

The latest Group session took place yesterday and 35 birds were caught. It was decided to try a site at Colyford Common, not regularly used. This proved ideal and the following were caught:

Reed Warbler 8; Dunnock 2; Wren 3; House Sparrow 11; Whitethroat 1; Blue Tit 3; Robin 2; Long-tailed Tit 2; Blackbird 1; Greenfinch 1; and Blackcap 1, a nice selection.

So far this year 18 Great Tit pulli have been ringed, and 32 Blue Tits. Five Kestrel pulli also ringed.

Hopefully our next session on 8th June will be equally as good.
