|The final wintering destination of this Redwing could be France or even further south in Spain and Portugal.|
Only 2 other species were ringed this morning and these were Goldcrest and Coal Tit. The 9 new Goldcrests brought the number ringed at the site this autumn to a fairly impressive 297. Observations alone would not have revealed anything like that number of birds moving through the site nor the rate of turnover. Hopefully there will be some recoveries of these birds in due course to indicate their origins and destinations. At the other end of the scale the single Coal Tit brought the number of that species ringed at the site to a much more modest 22.
|Goldcrest. There has been an almost continuous turnover of these birds at the site over the last two months.|
|A very smart little bird.|
