Lovely Bullfinch

A recent session down on the Seaton Wetlands enabled the Group to catch 42 birds of 13 species including 14 Chiffchaffs on migration and a lovely male Bullfinch as seen in the photographs.

Winter's over

Migration to their breeding grounds are well underway with fewer birds now seen in their wintering quarters. This was particularly noticeable on the Wetlands. Fewer birds seen and at our last ringing session resulting in fewer caught. Seventeen in total, including three Mallard caught in the Abberton Traps and a fine looking Treecreeper.
