A Rainy Day

Monday, June 13th 2011


SOME of the ringers turned out today and braved the elements!  It was another interesting experience with 40+ Black-headed Gulls ringed at a new site near Barningham then in incessant rain the net rides in the reed bed at Bellflask were cleared.  Below you can see the team at close of play - soaked to the skin!  Even the maltesers were wet and Sophie brought a flask of Elizabeth's tea by mistake!  On a more sombre note the Peregrines shown a couple of days ago are still sitting so without doubt all three eggs are infertile, which is a great shame and the second year in a row this particular site has failed.
