Saturday 15th September

 6am to 1pm ringing in Hertfordshire with Paul Roper, Paul Hawkins and Louise.

52 new birds ringed plus 22 retraps highlights being a good number of Greenfinch again Coal Tit, Goldcrest, Blackcap, Chaffinch and the fact that I started to extract a couple of  birds from the mist net.

Amongst all of this we had a flyover Red Footed Falcon that Paul Roper got onto first.  It only hung around for two minutes max? but enough for the four of us to ID and send  in a description of a immature Red foot.

Saturday 22nd September

6.15am to 11am at a east London site with Paul Hawkins produced the following ringing totals.

7 Meadow Pipit
2 Chiffchaff
1 Blackcap
1 Cetti's Warbler
4 Great Tit
2 Blue tit
3 Long tailed Tit
2 Dunnock

Catching the Meadow Pipits at this small site was really pleasing, wasn't a surprise as there was a steady passage going over but you've still got to catch them!
