The first 'vis' started in the half-light and we had 69 Meadow Pipits, 15 Lesser Redpolls, 2 Goldfinch, 2 Grey Wagtails, 3 Alba Wags, Reed Bunting, 8 Siskins, Linnet, 46 Woodpigeon, Rook, 9 Jackdaws, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Golden Plover.
The only grounded migrants we noted were the three Goldcrests we extracted from the nets. We had no idea they were around as they never called whilst on site. We ringed 22 birds as follows (recaptures in brackets):
Meadow Pipit - 15
Great Tit - 3 (1)
Goldfinch - 1
Goldcrest - 3
Dunnock - (3)
Weather permitting we will have another go tomorrow and I must try and remember that the clocks go forward tonight!
