March Ringing Totals

Over on the right you will see that I have updated the ringing totals for Fylde Ringing Group up until the end of March. We have ringed 122 birds of 20 species and are 379 birds down on where we were last year.

I haven't produced a list of the top 5 ringed for the month as only one species was ringed in double figures and this is Chiffchaff with 14 ringed. Nor have I listed a 'top ten movers and shakers' as only five species were ringed in double figures, so I have produced a 'top five movers and shakers' instead.

Top Five Movers and Shakers

1. Chiffchaff - 15 (straight in)
    Blue Tit - 15 (same position)
    Goldfinch - 15 (straight in)
4. Yellowhammer - 12 (down from 2nd)
5. Wheatear - 11 (straight in)

Ive helped out a local ringer in the past, and have got up close to lots of bird species, but a Wheatear would be a special treat for me!

Just like they are in the field, Wheatears are cracking birds in the hand Warren!
