Dawn and Dusk Ringing
From 'a few juvs' below you will see that Ian and I were out ringing at dawn and we were also out at dusk ringing at the Swallow roost. This is just a short post to let you know that we ringed 54 Swallows and approximately 2,020 birds were coming into roost. Interestingly the percentage of adults in the catch was higher at 11%, but of course it was a small sample so you can't read too much into it. As the autumn progresses you expect more adults as they finish breeding and start to move. I'll let you know how the rest of the week goes.
Below is another excellent Swallow picture from Bob; thanks Bob!
