Four surprises in the net!

During the weekends - when I'm not in Wageningen - I try to do some ringing in my garden, and once you're doing it it's quite addictive! Today I had quite a few surprises in my net. I ringed four new species for my garden!
 Goldcrest (Regulus regulus), 1cy female
 Coal Tit (Periparus ater), 1cy
 Marsh Tit (Poecile palustris), 1cy based on the retained tertails, pointed tailfeathers and 3-4 old GC's. First time I've seen (and ringed it!) it in my garden
 Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto), finally got one!!!

Tammo with the dove.

There was also a good movement of tits, with some 10 being caught. I also retrapped a Dunnock I ringed on 13-10. Few Great Tits were also ringed.
