CES 10

Monday, August 9th 2010

On Sunday there were twelve bird ringers working to record the birds caught in the mist nets. Of these there were six ladies, which is something of a record for Foxglove!

Bird ringing

In the eighteen years which Foxglove has been involved in the Constant Effort Site scheme run by the BTO this was the second best CES session 10 we have had. There were 312 birds processed during the day. Twenty two species including juvenile Siskins, Bullfinch, Treecreeper and even a Moorhen were amongst the birds caught.

All in all, a very successful day!
