Despite the threat of high winds and rain. The new ringing site developed by Lucy and Craig was quite sheltered and a few nets were set up. I do not have the totals for the day (I'm sure Lucy can update us) but amongst the usual Blue/Great Tits and Chaffinches, we a trapped a few Marsh Tit, three Great Spotted Woodpeckers, four Nuthatches and a Brambling.
Socially it was great to chat to group members from different sites and we enjoyed a good amount of Christmas food!! We spoke to quite a few members of the public many of who were fascinated in what we were doing and two young girls and their mother helped release some of the birds - something that will remain with them for quite a while!
Thanks to all involved and I hope you have a great Christmas and a prosperous New Year
