News from the South

Saturday, May 10th 2014

Last weekend it was mentioned that one of the ringing team, Jack Daw, rings on Salisbury Plain.  Here you can see a different dawn to that which we are used to at Foxglove.

Amongst other species he caught and ringed a Whitethroat, a bird that is not often seen at Foxglove.  Here you can see a lovely male.

Long Tailed Tits are quite common at Foxglove but we are going to have wait about another two weeks before the juveniles make an appearance here.  This one was ringed last weekend on Salisbury Plain where the breeding season is much further advanced.

Thank you Jack for the news of your ringing and the photographs.
