This morning I had the good fortune to be able to help my local ringer, so no visit was made to the patch. We caught 25 birds in 4hours, the star bird being a migrant SEDGE WARBLER. Also of note were 5 Juv. BULLFINCH, nice to see local bred birds.
If you get a chance to help out a bird ringer I can really recommend it.
I'll be out early tomorrow morning for the final Aug. patch visit. I need just one more new species for the month to equal the highest monthly total ever recorded, 2 would be great!!
