female Blackbird - one of many ringed during the session
Lesser Redpoll - after Blue Tit these were the most common species ringed
a rather tired looking Goldcrest - at least half a dozen were ringed
Treecreeper - one of two ringed, this one released by my 12 year old Jamie
Firecrest! The star of the show and amazing to see so closely
Jamie is now hooked and wants me to look into getting involved in ringing, obviously something I would be more than happy to look into! Other bird ringed while were were there were coal tit, long tailed tit, blue tit and goldfinch. Many thanks to the Waveney Bird Ringing Group and the volunteers on site that day.
