Snow ringing today!

As the snow is now falling it is time to update the blog with the results from the last couple of ringing sessions.
Mick visited the res on Monday and managed a very credible 33 Redwing, 19 Fieldfare, 2 Blackbird, 1 Song Thrush and 1 Reed Bunting.
A crisp and frosty Tuesday morning accompanied by a beautiful lunar eclipse saw Mick and Adam push the Redwing total over the 600 milestone with a further 58 ringed. A dozen more Fieldfare, 3 Blackbird and 2 Reed Bunting completed the days ringing.
With October Redwing weights being mid 50's to low 60's, it was encouraging to see that they were predominately mid 60's to mid 70's with only the odd one in the high 50's to low 60's range.


  1. I'd love to see some photo's of the site - we can only dream of Redwing numbers like that up here in SW Lancs!

  2. There are some photos in the Gallery section of our Web Site and the intention is to upload more in the future.
