Garden - 30 June 2012
The first ringing in the garden for some considerable time. Recently we have been having a lot juvenile Blue and Great Tits coming in, supported by a reasonable numbers of Gold and Greenfinches. There have also been a family of Great Spotted Woodpeckers fairly regular on the peanut feeder. Unfortunately the garden is relatively small in depth and the net very quickly puts birds off coming, often at times makes us wonder why we put it up. Only four birds were caught, including on the juvenile Woodpeckers.
