After returning yesterday from a week’s break at Portland Bird Observatory, I managed a morning’s ringing at SML. A warm, cloudless day with light winds and the calls of water rail and crests to indicate that a few birds had arrived whilst I’d been away

A total of 55 new birds were ringed including 5 Blackcap, 20 Chiffchaff, 8 Goldcrest, 11 Meadow Pipit, 2 Reed Bunting and 1 Song Thrush. A UK ringed Reed Bunting was also trapped.
