The Army Ornithological Society

Sunday, August 19th 2012

The Army Ornithological Society visited Foxglove Covert this weekend.  They enjoyed our birthday celebrations and joined the ringing team for CES 11 and a visit to the Crater on the nearby training area. 

The weather continues to have an effect on bird numbers and CES 11 was relatively quiet, but there were Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps processed.  Juvenile Bullfinches continued to make an appearance with 11 more new birds ringed.  Among the retraps was a 7 year old Goldfinch and a 6 year old Coal Tit!  At the Crater over 100 Meadow Pipits were ringed and a surprise was this young Stonechat.
