Mostly Robins and a hungry Hawfinch

Another day of fine weather accompanied another good Spring day of ringing. It was a busy start to the morning, but after 8 am the busy burst of birds slowed considerably to 2-3 birds per net round. A total of 55 new birds were ringed this morning and 13 retraps were caught.  Though numbers were similar to yesterday, the species diversity was not quite as high with 10 species ringed. Robins dominated the day, but a Linnet, Hawfinch (that decided to see how I taste and take a slice out of my finger) and Yellowhammer also featured.
The Yellowhammer ringed today
The great weather looks like it will continue for the next couple of days, so hopefully the good mornings of ringing will too.

Breakdown 19/04/2015:
Wren (Gærdesmutte) - 5
Dunnock (Jernspurv) - 4
Robin (Rødhals) - 33
Blackcap (Munk) - 3
Chiffchaff (Gransanger) - 1
Linnet (Tornirisk) - 1
Hawfinch (Kernebider) - 1
Yellowhammer (Gulspurv) - 1
TOTAL = 55
