Wraysbury GP - 5th December 2016

We returned to Wraysbury on a frosty morning and put up a total of 9 nets. We caught quite a few more Redwing, three female Blackbirds including a a definite continental individual and several Robins, some of which showed signs that they may be about to move on. Z958037 was ringed on the 2nd weighing 19.9g and only three days later it increased to 22.7g with the fat score going from 2 up to 4.

It was a strange day for additional observations with a Blackcap being seen along the footpath and a Peregrine passing over the ringing base late morning. We also saw Muntjac, Fox and a Hedgehog.
