Gardening!

Being thwarted from any Cissbury ringing due to virus and unco-operative weather on days I’ve been free, I popped a couple of nets up for 2 hours in the garden Sunday afternoon.

Predictably most of the catch of 17 birds were Blue Tits (10 of these, including a retrap ringed on 6.10.16), but also 3 Coal Tits, 1 Great Tit, 1 Goldcrest, a nice male Nuthatch and a Treecreeper.  The latter species I’d never even recorded in my garden!

PS I failed to find Darrell’s Hawfinches on Saturday – the only sighting of note was of Will Green approaching from the opposite direction!
