More Garden Ringing

I caught 40 birds in the front garden yesterday morning - there are young Greenfinches all over the place this year, and I ringed another three fresh Bullfinches!

Four of the birds I caught were birds I haven't ringed in the garden before. There were two of these...

I'd expect to catch Blackcaps in the garden during the winter - but not in July! Both were second year males

One of these...

We rarely see Wren's in the garden - so when I heard this one calling from some shrubs I was rather surprised. And very pleased it ended up in my net :-)

Lastly - and surprisingly only one - of these...

I just love handling these little darlings, they are all tail and feathers!
