Another hot day
A day with similar weather to yesterday produced about half the number of birds - just 45 new birds of 14 species ringed today. Blackcaps were most numerous (9) closely followed by Lesser Whitethroat. A Greenfinch was the first caught for a while.
Not much was noted flying over the garden today - the highlight a flock of 12 Crossbills. Other than that, small numbers of Tree Pipit and Yellow Wagtail, 3 Sparrowhawks and a Great Spotted Woodpecker were the only birds of note. A Wryneck was seen several times but managed to evade our nets.
Ringing totals comprised:
Tree Pipit/Skovpiber - 1, Robin/Rødhals - 2, Thrush Nightingale/Nattergal - 1, Redstart/Rødstjert - 2, Icterine Warbler/Gulbug - 3, Lesser Whitethroat/Gærdesanger - 8, Whitethroat/Tornsanger - 5, Garden Warbler/Havesanger - 4, Blackcap/Munk - 9, Willow Warbler/Løvsanger - 6, Spotted Flycatcher/Grå Fluesnapper - 1, Pied Flycatcher/Broget Fluesnapper - 1, Starling/Stær - 1, Greenfinch/Grønirisk - 1.
