Stonechats...11th May 2009

Later in the year we are going to give a ringing demonstration at Fleetwood Marsh Nature Park and this evening we went to the Nature Park to decide which net rides to use and to get them cut in readiness. After we had a look round and decided on the best area we then went to Rossall Point to try and find a nest of Stonechats.

After much observing the adults bringing in food we found the nest and ringed 5 cracking chicks that were a good week old and it wouldn't be too long before they fledged. Unfortunately I left my camera in the car and didn't get any pictures.
