Foxglove in The Sunday Telegraph

Monday, April 6th 2009

Over 40 visitors were in today and several ringers. The very decent article on Foxglove published this morning in The Sunday Telegraph had an immediate effect, with at least two families who read the piece over breakfast coming in to satisfy their curiosity.

The ringers processed almost 120 birds, with Lesser Redpoll again being the most numerous species caught. Chiffchaff, Siskin and Reed Bunting were also netted but still no Willow Warblers. Almost certainly they will appear during the coming week.

Many of the recently planted hardwoods are coming into leaf and the odd Peacock butterfly is making an appearance.
