And The Swallows Were Ready
Ian and I had our first Swallow ringing session in the wet reedbed last night and managed to ring 40 Swallows, control one and ring a single Reed Warbler. The ring number of the controlled bird was D006605. It was difficult to tell how many Swallows were coming into roost, but probably not as many as the 1,000 counted a few evenings ago. We will carefully monitor the numbers roosting and hopefully have a couple of catches in the week.
