New Year in the Pits 03/01/2010

Present: JAF

Got the year off to a start at Askam Pits, 16 birds processed. New: Great Spotted Woodpecker 1; Wren 1; Robin 1; Blue Tit 4; Great Tit 4; Treecreeper 1; Chaffinch 2.

The retraps were 2 Coal Tits, one of which was first ringed on 2 November 2003, subsequently retrapped on 26/12/2005, and 6/12/2006.

Always pleasing to catch a Treecreeper

Enough reedbed to support a couple of pairs of Reed and Sedge Warblers in the summer.
