Stanwell Moor ringing site - 18 September 2010
Another afternoon/evening visit resulted in a further good Meadow Pipit catch with birds still coming into the shallow pools. Attempts to attract in any wandering Lapland Buntings have not succeeded. The catch comprised of Sparrowhawk (2, adult and juvenile males), Wren (1), Chiff-chaff (5), Linnet (1) and a further 52 new Meadow Pipits.
3 male Linnet
Next visit eagerly awaiting to see if the Meadow Pipit run continues.
