Pipit ringing at Newton
Tuesday morning seemed like the only chance Mark and I could try and do some ringing this week. So we were up bright and early before work and after three hours had managed to catch a few birds including the target species, this lovely Tree Pipit. Also nearly added Spotted Flycatcher and Whiethroat as they put in an unexpected appearance in the trapping area. Several Meadow Pipits and Willow Warblers along with Siskin, Lesser Redpoll, Greenfinch and more juvenile Coal Tits made for an interesting time.
