Friday Night Saturday Morning

Date 23/24/07/2010.  Present:  RG; CG; AM; JS and KH.
There were twenty species ringed and one-hundred and fifteen birds processed. They were as follows,( re-traps).   Wren 3(1),  Swallow 2, Dunnock 8, Robin 14(1), Blackbird 6, Song Thrush 1, Lesser Whitethroat 4, Whitethroat 4, Blackcap 7(1), Chiffchaff 10(1), Willow Warbler 9(1), Goldcrest 7, Long-tailed Tit 1, Coal Tit 5, Blue Tit 5(1), Great Tit 11(1), Jay 1, Chaffinch 2, Redpoll 4, Bullfinch 3.
As would be expected over 100 of the birds were aged "3" or "3J"
Below is a photo. of something that caused a minor diversion from ringing.  As ringers, some of the party, regard these as simply exotic bird food.
