A Control Breezes In

Meeting at 0430 hrs Tuesday 28th June, with Masai Mick and Webmaster Mike, we were greeted by a chilly, breezy and overcast morning for a ringing session at "The Point" area at Stanford.  The conditions were not great and the morning's catch certainly reflected that - just 66 birds processed with 32 of these being new birds.

Whitethroats were in strong evidence (13 new and 9 retraps) and as such comprised one third of the total catch.

A male control Blackcap (L 858207) was the highlight of the session.

On a quiet morning, there was time for more photographs:
