Went out with PH ringing Saturday morning. Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Cetti's Warbler, Bullfinch, Great Tit, Robin and Dunnock made a good mixture for the 3 hour session. The Blackcaps were new in with 4 being ringed and a few singing around the site made the place feel more spring like along with singing Chiffchaff. The highlight for me though was the 2 Bullfinch. A male 5 and adult female 6.

EURING code 6= hatched before previous calender year - exact year unknown (e.g many adults in spring)
Once again up at 5am but this time ringing with PRO in the woodland up in Hertfordshire along with Louise.
Processed 43 birds highlights were 2 Nuthatch, 3 GSW, Coal Tit, 3 Greenfinch and a few Chaffinch. Also Brambling, Siskin and a few Red Kite over.
