Over on the right I have updated the ringing totals for Fylde Ringing Griup up until the end of November. No new species were added in November and in fact there is very little change in terms of the top ten 'movers and shakers'. It was nice to see Pied Wagtail as the most ringed bird during the month and Linnet coming straight in to eighth position!
Below you will find the top four ringed for the month and the aforementioned 'top 10 movers and shakers'.
