Freezing cold

But with a warm surprise...!

Went ringing this morning with Hans and Gerrit. We put 7 nets up together with the clapnet, to try our luck with that!

Results for the session weren't bad at all, with 87 birds trapped.

Blackbird 2 - 2
Blue Tit 26 - 6
Coal Tit 1 -
Dunnock - 1
Goldcrest 3 - 1
Goldfinch 1 -
Great Tit 31 - 5
Lesser Redpoll 1 -
Long-tailed Tit 1 - 1
Robin 1 - 1
Wren 3 - 1

The surprise was the Lesser Redpoll, a new species for our site! It was a fine adult male!

 Lesser Redpoll (Carduelis cabaret), adult male
 Goldfinch (Carduelis carduelis), adult female
 Long-tailed Tit (Aegithilos caudatus)
Coal Tit (Periparus ater), adult
