Thrushed with Success

The 114 Redwings ringed at Stanford this week took our current annual total for Redwing to 355 new birds - more than double the combined annual totals for the last 30 years.


An additional 23 Fieldfare, 12 Blackbirds and 3 Song Thrushes contributed to the 167 new birds ringed this week. Two Goldfinches, a Reed Bunting, a Goldcrest and a female Blackcap were also welcome additions for the week.

However, a party of 15 Waxwings on Friday 10th successfully evaded the nets.


  1. Numbers of thrushes are all down to dedication from the 'midweek ringers'. Well done guys!
