28th October

Early in the week the forecast looked great for ringing on Friday.  I got clearance from week to cram in a weeks work into 4 days.  Unfortunately by thursday the forecast had changed, as usual, and looked quite breezy.  Ringing went well tho with a few robin and blackcap being trapped. The afternoon was particularly quiet although the roost catch proved fruitful with 3 new robins and 3 blackbirds.

Ringing totals included 7 robin, blackbird and blackcap, 6 blue tit, 5 chaffinch and singles of song thrush, wren, chiffchaff and goldcrest. Retraps consisted of 6 blackbird and a wren.
