Oxfordshire and Stanwell Moor roost - 29 August 2010

We took our over night roosted birds back to Stanwell site for release this morning.

 Reed Bunting

Reed Buntings are being colour-ringed, so keep a watch for any with BTO + colour and 2 colours.

Sand Martin

A quick vist to Oxon for Adonis Blue and Brown Hairstreaks proved negative.

 Meadow Brown - Lardon Chase

 Common Blue - Lardon Chase

A return to Stawnell Moor ringing site tonight produced another 14 Sand Martins and 7 Swallows, plus a Reed and Willow Warbler.

We were joined by Emma, Helen and Vick Inzani and Mike and Margaret Beatley from the ringing group (Hilfield Res contingent).
