September Ringing Totals

I have finally updated the annual ringing totals up to the end of September and changed them to the group totals rather than from my efforts alone. The monthly totals for September were very good with 1232 birds ringed of 31 species with Swallow topping the species totals at 839. 

The top five species ringed in September were:
1st Swallow 839
2nd Reed Warbler 84
3rd Goldfinch 65
4th Goldcrest 56
5th Chiffchaff 36

The number of Goldcrests ringed was particularly pleasing and another 18 have already been added to that total in October. The majority of these birds have been ringed at Haigh Hall with 34 ringed in September and 12 so far in October.
