First session for 2021!

The Group conducted its first ringing session since the second lockdown, which enabled five members to take advantage of the sunny dry morning and gentle breeze. Fifty one birds were caught of 14 species, but only one migrant Chiffchaff. Good numbers of Greenfinches and Goldfinches and few Chaffinches. One Cetti's Warbler and one Mute Swan was colour ringed. A reasonable start to the year and hoping no further restrictions will prevent more sessions taking place.
