March Ringing Totals

Over on the right you will see the totals for Fylde Ringing Group up until the end of March. We have ringed 948 birds of 39 species which is an increase of 129 birds over where we were this time last year. Two new species were ringed in March and these were Snipe and Grey Wagtail. I have listed below the top ten 'movers and shakers'.

1. Goldfinch - 119 (up from 6th)
2. Lesser Redpoll - 108 (straight in)
3. Blue Tit - 107 (down from 1st)
4. Chaffinch - 101 (down from 2nd)
5. Great Tit - 72 (down from 3rd)
6. Meadow Pipit - 56 (straight in)
7. Turnstone - 40 (down from 5th)
8= Tree Sparrow - 32 (down from 6th)
     Blackbird - 32 (down from 7th)
10= Dunnock - 29 (down from 9th)
       Robin - 29 (down from 8th)

 Goldfinch - Number 1 in March!

I suppose the two notable movers and shakers in March are Lesser Redpoll and Meadow Pipit that have come straight in to the top ten in 2nd and 6th places respectively!
