Brambling

Sunday, January 5th 2014

The bird ringers were ringing at another site this morning.  There was a beautiful sunrise as they put up the nets.

Sunrise

Twelve species were ringed but the highlight of the day was two male Bramblings, both hatched last year.  These were the first two Bramblings of the winter to be caught.  A total of 95 birds were caught including 7 Reed Bunting, 6 Marsh Tit and 5 Long Tails - among the retraps were several birds 4 and 5 years old.

Male Brambling

Brambling have been seen at Foxglove but none have yet ventured into the ringing room! One spotted in the garden today was wearing a ring and had obviously been ringed previously.
