29th April

Went along to Lea Valley water works NR to help out Paul Roper with a ringing demo along with Paul Hawkins and Louise. We processed 36 new birds Reed Warbler, Whitethroat, Blackcap, Reed Bunting, Cetti's Warbler and a few Greenfinch added a nice mixed catch, Great to see and speak to some of the local school children that attended and show them some of the birds that we ringed.

Cetti's Warbler

In between a couple of ringing sessions I've added a few new birds for the patch year list. With Wheatear, Little Owl and Swift being the latest birds, which puts me on 101 for the year. Didn't see a Little Owl on the patch last year!

A slow session this morning with PH with only 11 birds ringed. Nice to ring our first Lesser Whitethroat of the season though.
