Second Snow Bunting Session

Saturday, February 9th 2013

A second training opportunity to catch and ring Snow Bunting was offered to the Foxgove bird ringers by the Tees Ringing Group.

Cheeky Snobu

Pictured here is a juvenile female. There are two races of this species and this one is an Icelandic bird (insulae), this is evident by the slightly darker plumage and darker primary-coverts. Thank you to the members of the Tees Ringing Group for sharing this wonderful training opportunity.

Glennis and Pat have been hard at work once again and made a Grand Easter Cryptic Word Quiz! Quiz sheets are available from the Field Centre for £1 each. The answers are all moth and butterfly names. The closing date for entries is Friday March 29th. Answers will be posted here one week later (April 5th). Entries can be returned to the Field Centre in person or sent by post or email to the addresses on the sheet. There is a prize for the most correct answers. In the event of more than one winner, all the successful names will be put into a hat and one winner will be drawn for the prize. Good luck, may the best puzzle-solving lepidopterist win!
