Still breezy first thing but the wind died down to manageable levels pretty quickly after dawn; this produced a very good day of ringing for the first day of the month with a total of 173 new birds caught highlighted by a very impressive first winter Common Buzzard which bundled into a net at the exact right time for me to jump on it and a lovely Firecrest. The total was largely made up of 62 Goldcrests, 33 Chiffchaffs, 29 Chaffinches and 18 Robins along with 3 Sparrowhawks, 2 Coal Tits, 4 Siskins and a Yellowhammer.
Today's totals - 3 Sparrowhawk / Spurvehoeg; 1 Buzzard / Musvage; 9 Wren / Gaerdesmutte; 3 Dunnock / Jernspurv; 18 Robin / Roedhals; 2 Blackcap / Munk; 33 Chiffchaff / Gransanger; 62 Goldcrest / Fuglekonge; 1 Firecrest / Roedtoppet Fuglekonge; 2 Coal Tit / Sortmejse; 3 Blue Tit / Blamejse; 1 Tree Sparrow / Skovspurv; 29 Chaffinch / Bogfinke; 1 Brambling / Kvaerkefinke; 4 Siskin / Groensisken; 1 Yellowhammer / Gulspurv
A lazy day really as I never left the garden but overhead there were 20+ Crossbills, a Mistle Thrush, several Grey Wagtails and a latish Yellow Wagtail along with a steady passage of Chaffinches, Bramblings and Siskins heading SE in decent sized flocks as well as quite a few flocks of Blue Tits and Coal Tits which never came down low enough to be caught.
