The Dark Room

Tuesday 26 May 2020


Hope your all well and good and apologies for not updating the blog of late. Anyway here is a quick update.

Since the ease of some of the lockdown rules I've managed some ringing out on our site but missed the main passage of birds going through, however still got to ring a mixed variety of Warblers : Common,Lesser,Willow, Chiffchaff, Reed and Blackcaps.

Most of my ringing when time and weather has permitted throughout the lockdown has been in the garden ringing mostly Starling - 50+ but a male Blackcap on 3rd May was a decent record. The first Juv House Sparrow was ringed on the 8th May and the first juv Starling on the 25th May.
