A bit of Farmland ringing

Well I didn't have time to go to Stanford Friday morning as I only had a few hours spare. So I decided I would try ringing at a local farm to me, some 50 miles east of Stanford. All the nets were up by 5.30 with tape lures sounding.Well what a difference. Great Tits, Robins and Dunnocks. By 0800 I was beginning  to think about packing up as the wind was increasing and the mist had turned to a light rain. I then caught 3 Yellowhammers which improved the morning. On the last but one round I caught a young Little Owl (ringing tick) which made it all worthwhile.In total I ringed 24 new birds mostly Robins and Dunnocks and 1 retrap.
