Stanwell Moor ringing site - 13 May 2012

This was our first real ringing outing since Cyprus, making a moderately early start and covering a varied area within the site. The catch was moderate, but consisted of a re-trap Starling that was originally rung at the site in 2009 at the post breeding season Starling roost, plus our first Long-tailed Tit and Staling juveniles of the year. We got 37 birds of 11 species, which included two controls, L271161 a Reed Warbler and X569772 a Garden Warbler, which considering the size of the catch was fairly good going.
