Great mornings ringing with plenty of birds still around. Considering how many birds we have rung in the last couple of weeks it was amazing there were any new birds left. By the end of the morning we had rung 86 birds and re-trapped 36! Highlights were a control juvenile blackcap form another site, 2 juvenile treecreepers, coal tit and 2 chiffchaffs. The male turtle dove was still singing and 2 crossbills flew west but didn't stop.

Off down to Somerset in search of large blue butterflies for a few days and hopefully to get some more ringing done.
