First birds of the winter caught and ringed

Gary was successful at the weekend catching and ringing the first birds this winter.

Two first winters and a second winter bird became the latest additions to our study cohort. 

While we do not know where these birds have come from (we know from previously recorded ringed birds that they might have fledged from a colony a few miles away or Eastern Europe), we do have the advantage of being able to age them.

If you record any colour-ringed birds which you think might be from our study, even if it's a bird previously reported, you can get in touch via bhgni@ymail.com
