Askham Bryan students meet the cattle

Friday, September 18th 2009

9 students from Askham Bryan college started their new term here today. They will be coming to Foxglove with their tutor Tim one day each week as part of their countryside diploma. They did some heathland work this afternoon, but this picture is from first thing this morning when we took them to the moorland to be introduced to the cattle. Only McDuff got to be in the picture!

Latest news on the ringing data is that a male Chaffinch caught this year during the CES period and processed by Lesley was ringed as a second year bird in 1999 (hatched in 1998) making it 11 years old. This has to be our oldest passerine to date!
