Ringing in the reserve at Velator today produced the usual crop of Finches and Tits, with the highlights being the first Song Thrush of the winter, 4 new Blackbirds and 2 male Siskins.
We also saw a Woodcock, which
needless to say didn't find a net! Plenty of Water Rails
calling and a lone Cetti's Warbler too.
of the late summer Kingfishers too.
Didn't see any winter Thrushes
despite plenty of Hawthorn, Buckthorn, and other berries/friuit.
