For a change the weather conditions were perfect for a good morning's ringing with no wind at all and an overcast sky (needless to say not all what had been forecast!)
We managed 72 new birds with 14 retraps - a tad disappointing given the conditions but the reward was some late warblers and our second raptor of the week - a female Sparrowhawk.
Amongst the new birds were 4 Goldcrest, 8 Chiffs, 26 Mipits, 12 Blackcap, 2 Garden Warbler, 2 Lesser Whitethroats and a Sedge Warbler.
