A Surprise

Friday, September 12th 2014

Members of the ringing team were once again up at 'the crater' putting up nets in the early morning light to ring Meadow Pipits. Early autumn sees a massive movement of these birds through the area, to date 1015 Meadow Pipits have been ringed this year along with 12 retraps and 21 birds of 8 other species including this Yellow Wagtail which was caught this morning.

This is the first Yellow Wagtail the group has ringed in over a decade. Pied Wagtails and Grey Wagtails were also seen flying during the morning session.
