Hay Bridge - Red Kites and Winter Fires

Present RG, CG, KH.
The plan was to catch finches, but the distraction of  Red Kites flying overhead and a winter fire close by reduced the catch. 73 birds were processed, (15) re-traps and 1 control Redpoll.
Blackbird 1, Long-tailed Tit 3, Coal Tit 4 (2), Blue Tit 21(10), Great Tit 7, Chaffinch 6 (1),  Goldfinch1, Siskin 4, Redpoll 11(2).

REDPOLL  (KH's only photo not in hand)

SISKIN ( unfortunately after ringing)

Can I ask why it is unfortunate that the photo of the male Siskin is post-ringing?

Cheers

Love the Siskin photo against that neutral background

Peter, I agree - this is, after all, a ringing blog :-)
