A busy August

 I've been busy ringing the last few weeks with PH and enjoyed some good results at our little site. So here are a few highlights. The 8th of August saw us smash our morning total with the help of PRO with over 100 new birds ringed 2 Grasshopper Warbler, 2 Kingfisher and good numbers Garden Warbler were notable.

The 11th and 13th August saw more Juvenile Warblers go through the site - Reed & Sedge, Blackcap.

 The 20th which was a  solo ringing session produced a stunning 1cy Male Pied Flycatcher.

The 24th August highlights were 9 Willow Warbler and 2 Tree pipits both Juveniles.

And a total of 7 ringing sessions so far this month plus 4 working visits, we've been busy. And on one of those working visits we had a fly over Great white Egret!
