The seemingly incessant wind throughout the month of May resulted in a couple of planned ringing sessions cancelled and several brought to an early conclusion. Despite this, we managed to mist net and ring 121 new birds which, together with pulli, resulted in 468 new birds. Particularly encouraging were the new bird totals for Whitethroat (19), Garden Warbler (11), Tree Sparrow (18) and Linnet (11).
