The Dark Room

Tuesday, 17 November 2020


 Reached a small milestone for the garden this week as I've now ringed over 150 birds of 20 species. A female Chaffinch was the 20th Species and a Long-tailed Tit was 150th to be ringed. It all started back in February when I got my C-permit and all the data has been given to the BTO. A full list of the birds are below.

Blackbird 3

Starling 63

Blue Tit 13

Great Tit 4

Parakeet 4

Goldfinch 22

Dunnock 4

Woodpigeon 2

Robin 3

Green Woodpecker 1

House Sparrow 4 

Magpie 11

Crow 1

Collard Dove 1

Chiffchaff 1

Goldcrest 3

Blackcap 2

Long-tailed Tit 9

Sparrowhawk 1

Chaffinch 1

Just 1 control and that was a male Chaffinch ringed at our own site not that far away on 13:9:20.

However Jackdaw is always seen in the garden daily but are just to clever and see the 9m net!
