On arrival on site there were certainly some good numbers of both Redwings and Fieldfares in the area.
We set five nets in total and by the time we had the first two setup we were already getting Goldcrests.
It was a steady afternoon's ringing and after about four and a half hours we had caught and ringed 37 birds and had two retraps of ten species.
Totals were five Blackbird (including one retrap), one Chiffchaff, two Fieldfare, 12 Golcrests (including one retrap), nine Redwing, four Robin, one Song Thrush, three Wren, one Yellow-browed and the highlight of the day one adult male Sparrowhawk. The latter being my second mist net extraction of that species.
All in all a good ringing session with a good mixture of species to help towards obtaining my permit.
Thanks to my friends for rescheduling at short notice.
