One More to Go

Saturday, August 24th 2019

CES 11 (Constant Effort Site) was completed today.  Dawn was breaking as the bird ringers arrived.

Thirty nine Bullfinces were ringed today, an astounding number.  Siskin, Coal Tit, Marsh Tit and Robin were also processed.  Most of the Willow Warblers have now headed south, beginning their migration.

A surprise was a juvenile Pied Flycatcher.

Another one was spotted hunting for butterflies amongst the Hemp Agrimony.

Ken and Linda very kindly provided us with sausage rolls and scones to go with the many cups of tea they made.  A huge thank you to everyone involved, making today another successful ringing session.

It was also moth morning and there will be more about this tomorrow.
