Pain games

This morning only limited nets were set due to the poor weather conditions; wind and potential to rain. It was a shorter session than recent days due to the rain coming in late morning. Still, we managed to ring 131 birds. Highest numbers were Blue Tit 39, Robin 26, Chiffchaff 25 and Goldcrest 15. We also caught 2 Sparrowhawks, 1 Kestrel and a Jay. (1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Kestrel and the Jay in 1 net round) Leaving my hands torn to pieces and cringing about the large flocks of Blue Tits flying around the garden. Below are some photographs of the birds dealing out the pain this morning.
