Lovely Tern in the weather?

I don't believe it! Fine weather at last so a good chance to do some garden ringing. Unfortunately, the wind was coming from the east and gusting so the nets were billowing a bit. Even so we caught lots of young Tits, mainly Great along with a retrap Lesser Redpoll and several Greenfinches. We also too the opportunity to ring three nests of Swallow pulli at the farm.

This Woodpigeon was a ringing tick for me - I was wondering when we'd get one!
What was more surprising was a Common Tern flying over the garden. It's over ten years since I last saw one along the canal so it was long overdue - nice spot, Mark. I think it'll be Moth trap time tonight as fine weather is predicted!
