After I was picked up at 05:15hrs, we had the mist nets up and running by 05:30. Ive not recieved the final tally of birds that were ringed but the highlights were: A male Blackcap that had already been ringed by someone else, and a Garden Warbler that we had rung back in June 2007. This means that this bird has travelled to and from africa at least 7 times :-). We also trapped a Great Spotted Woodpecker that tried to peck its way through my mates finger, drawing blood!
I had an hour and a half this afernoon looking for Butterflies, and found this little beauty - Common Blue
