Autumn ringing, week 8 – Golden-winged Warbler!

Definitely a week of extremes – from a 295 bird day to  a day with only 22 birds. Ringing tick for Ian of Conneticut Warbler and “bird of the week” has to be the Golden-winged Warbler that turned up in the net on the 2nd September – the first time since 1996 one has been […]

Lots of swallows around as there usually is when the weather is like this […]
