The Return Of Icelandic Terry
Craig, Ian and I met early this morning at the Marine Lakes for another session rinigng Turnstones. We quickly set the whoosh net and were soon processing 15 new 'Terry's'. In addition to the new birds we recaptured one of 'our' birds ringed in December and th Icelandic bird we caught a couple of weeks ago.
Afterwards I headed to the Moss to feed the Tree Sparrows and I counted 203 along with 22 Chaffinch. I didn't linger on the Moss as the freezing fog was so thick it was difficult to see more than a few yards ahead.
