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
1 Cetti's Warbler
4 Great Tit
2 Blue tit
3 Long tailed Tit
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!
