The bird ringer has been back in action this morning. As the migration gathers pace, he is getting some fantastic birds.
What a privilege to see these birds like this. By the end of the morning he had caught and ringed 52 birds: 25 Chiffchaffs, 13 Blackcaps, 5 Goldcrests, 4 Bluetits, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Firecrest, 1 Wren, 1 Great Tit and 1 Robin. They have been sent on their way, now wearing their lovely silver bracelets and I wonder if we will hear of some of them again in some far and distant place.
