7th January 2010 - First Session at Warnham

Today Stuart and I spent some time ringing at Warnham LNR for the first time this year which provided 28 new birds of nine species. An influx of Blackbirds were estimated to be at least 40 although only three were caught and many more present were unringed, while retraps included a Blue Tit and two Long-tailed Tit ringed in early autumn 2008.
The highlights came in the form of an adult male Woodpigeon (above) and hopefully the first of many Siskin which have now just started coming to the feeders (immature male below).
Birds ringed:
Great Tit - 5
Goldfinch - 3
Blue Tit - 11
Chaffinch - 2
Greenfinch - 1
Blackbird - 3
Great Spotted Woodpecker - 1
Woodpigeon - 1
