|Unprecedented numbers of Goldfinches have visited the garden this |
autumn with 359 ringed to date.
|Adult male Siskin, hopefully many more will come to the feeders over the winter.|
I have managed to fit in a bit of ringing during the week; just 2 very short mist netting sessions and occasional use of a cage trap for Starlings. Two of the Goldfinches caught were controls (ringed elsewhere) and both of these had been ringed Kings Moss a few kilometres away.
|A stunning adult male Starling.|
Goldfinch 10 (+1 retrap & 2 controls)
Long-tailed Tit 1
Blue Tit 1
Total 25 (+1 retrap & 2 controls)
