With dreadful weather forecast for today, the troops were duly informed that today's ringing was cancelled.
Our Dear Leader, MJT (aka "Masai Mick" for reasons yet to be divulged) awoke early, ostensibly to watch the cricket. However, he decided that a couple of hours ringing was actually possible before the weather broke and duly slipped over to Stanford. He ringed 21 new Redwings and was back home before the rest of us had stirred from our slumbers.
His sterling effort increased the number of Redwing ringed this year at the site to 402, making it the second most ringed species there this year - behind the 483 Blue Tits
