Catching was fairly steady but it was obvious that quite a few birds knew the score and how to avoid getting caught. Chaffinches and Bramblings still topped the totals but a House Sparrow was the star bird and the first I have caught at this site or seen there for that matter.
|male House Sparrow (Passer domesticus) a new species for the site.|
|This particular Brambling (Fringilla montifringilla) brought the number|
ringed this winter to 150 but the total now stands at 153.
|male Chaffinch (Fringilla coelebs), a long winged continental type bird.|
Chaffinch 10 (3)
Brambling 9 (3)
Greenfinch 7 (2)
Blue Tit 2 (9)
Great Tit 1 (2)
House Sparrow 1
Coal Tit – (3)
Long-tailed Tit – (2)
Bullfinch – (1)
Total 35 new birds and 25 recaptures.
