During 2012, 3786 birds were ringed at Stanford Reservoir (5531 birds processed) of 57 species.

Unsurprisingly the weather (rain) had a major impact on the breeding season, with numbers of most warblers, finches and buntings reduced in comparison to previous years. The odd exception to this observation was noted e.g. Willow Warblers and Lesser Redpolls were caught in record numbers.

Lesser Redpoll - 2012 was a good year!
