Not a stupid question at all! We did remove it from the birds leg but it was damaged so we just binned it.

The ring from the Redwing I think could not be usesd again? having already logged a data record to a bird caught.? Plus these records go to the BTO.

Jason

Surely the redwing should be on the list of re-traps.

Very quiet today.

Elsewhere in the Coastal Park, 6 Brent Geese were in the field just north of the Lighthouse giving exceptionally good views. And a handful of Snow Buntings regularly flew over the Ringing Hut.

Nice to catch up today Jason. It amazes me that every time i see a trapped bird in the hand they always look much smaller than they do when i watch / photograph them in the field. The Blue Tit you had this afternoon looked absolutely tiny - but a bonny sight nevertheless..

Yeah it was great to have a good old chinwag Derek. You're dead right about the birds seeming smaller in the hand. That really took me by surprise when I first started. Its a pity we were just packing up when you came along cos you'd have seen a lot more if it had been a bit earlier. Today might have been the last day for this year, but you are more than welcome to pop along when we start again in the Spring.

The Ringing season pretty much finished last weekend on the Mound at the Coastal Park, but today we had a bit of ground maintenance to do so we thought we might as well stick a couple of nets up while we were there. As expected it was fairly quiet, but we still got a handful of new birds including a couple of Redpolls and a stunning male Bullfinch. The maintenance we did this morning was putting a number of concrete steps (18 in total) on the entrance to the Mound to make easier access when the weather is poor. It took 4 of us about 3hours to complete but it was a much needed job and it was done in fine style.

WE'RE BACK!!!!!!!!! After a long and very boring winter away from the Coastal Park, the doors of the little green Ringing Hut were re-opened again at 6.00am this morning. And boy was it good to be back! It felt like we were home. And how lovely was it to have good weather for our first session of the season. As was totally expected we didnt have a big catch this morning, as the migrants have only just started to trickle in, but the fact that things WERE starting to arrive means it was time to get the nets out. Lets hope we have another very good year.

New birds; Blue Tit(1), Goldcrest(1)

Ringing was a lot better today than last weekend. Nine new birds were Ringed, including the first Warblers of the year (all Chiffchaffs). The Chiffchaffs were a day earlier than the first ones we Ringed last year. Offshore, there was a small passage of Sandwich Terns heading north.

New birds; Chiffchaff(3), Coal Tit(3), Blue Tit(1), Goldcrest(1)
Re-traps; Blackbird(1)
