11th January 2010 - A Winter Finch Double

Another Monday morning at Chesworth Farm produced 66 new birds which although again consisting mainly of tits also included for the first time for me both Siskin and Redpoll in the same session. And the Siskin was the first of this species to be caught at this site (below). Also for the third week running a Woodpigeon hit one of the copse nets, but got out just before reaching it!!
The best of the retraps were a Blue Tit and a Great Tit ringed here in October 2007 and a Reed Bunting ringed in November 2006.
Birds ringed:
Blue Tit - 42
Redpoll - 1
Reed Bunting - 3
Great Tit - 6
Goldfinch - 3
Chaffinch - 1
Dunnock - 1
Siskin - 1
Greenfinch - 6
Blackbird - 2
