Stanwell Moor ringing site - 18 March 2012

Denise having woken at six got up and managed a few late Siskin with five before breakfast.

A visit mainly to get the ride area cleared of some Willows in the hope of encouraging more Swallows into the site this summer was met when we arrived by a singing Cetti's Warbler and Chiff-chaff in the ringing area, but the Cetti,s failed to appear and we caught nothing in the carr area, but we were makign a bit of a noise as I played with my new Ryobi streamer/hedge trimmer/chain saw attachments. We set a small open box on the mound and managed a single Meadow Pipit and Linnet before the 2wind got up and made catching unlikely.

Meadow Pipit - 5

Linnet - 5 female

Total (2):

Meadow Pipit (1)
Linnet (1)
