As is usual at this time of month I have updated the ringing totals over on the right for Fylde Ringing Group, and they are far from impressive. The wet windy weather of January and February certainly played havoc with our totals and we have a lot of catching up to do Let's hope for a settled spring.
I haven't done a top ten 'movers and shakers', but instead I have just listed below the top three ringed:
1. Blue Tit - 15
2. Yellowhammer - 12 (unusual to see this species so high in the 'charts')
3. Goldfinch - 9
The weather is looking settled next week and hopefully I'll be able to ring some Meadow Pipits at the Obs. In fact the weather looks good from tomorrow onwards for some early spring arrivals with high pressure and southerly winds. I'll be out in the morning looking for that first Wheatear.
