Garden ringing

Spent a few hours with my trainer this afternoon doing some whoosh netting in his garden.

We caught a total of 16 birds, 15 of which were new birds consisting of  five House Sparrows, nine Greenfinch and one Blackbird and one retrap which was a Greenfinch which had been ringed in my trainer's garden on a previous session.

There was also a Dunnock and a Song Thrush in the garden but they both kept clear of the net.

Not much activity in my garden yet but hopefully with Spring approaching the birds will start coming back and we can have a ringing session here.
