CES 12

Monday, August 23rd 2010

This beautiful photo taken by Elizabeth shows the sunrise at the weekend on the last day of the CES bird ringing scheme for 2010 at Foxglove. It was taken at around 5.30am as the mist nets were being put up around the site.

Sunrise at Foxglove Covert

The day was successful and amongst the many species caught and ringed were two Redstarts. This year was the third most productive, only 33 birds behind the best ever. At the end of the day the total number of new birds ringed in Foxglove Covert was over 42000!


Well done to all of the Swaledale bird ringing team!
