Amazing day ringing in the garden this morning. Despite the forecast of rain and wind the weather was actually OK so I opened at 6am. By the time things had gone quiet at midday I had trapped 74 birds, 70 new and 4 re-traps most of the birds were greenfinch (55)!! Previous highest catch was 52 birds last year. A impressive total considering we only managed 54 new birds at our main ringing site yesterday.
