Place Farm, Brewer Street, Bletchingley, Surrey - 25 March 2012

This morning we headed over to Bletchingley, Surrey to ring in some friends' garden. They get birds ranging from Willow Tit to Yellowhammer and have recently had up to 20 Redpoll visiting. Of course by the time we were able to arrange a visit the Redpolls were long gone, as was a Yellowhammer that left the moment the net was erected.

 Nuthatch - 5

Blue Tit - 6 with pollen around beak


We were intrigued to capture a Blue Tit bearing ring number T089632 and look forward to finding out when and where it was ringed.

The catch total was 102 (1 control),  as follows:

Robin - 2

Blue Tit - 66 (1)
Great Tit - 28
Nuthatch - 1
Goldfinch - 4
Chaffinch - 1
