30th June 2018

Nets opened at 0415 and closed at 1100 with 18 new birds of 9 species. A further three birds were ringed in a nest box when we finished our monitoring of nest boxes for spring with a brood of Pied Flycatcher (Svartvit flugsnappare).

While checking the flycatcher box the adults were in the area calling, when they were joined by a Crested Tit (Tofsmes), which sat nearby showing great interest. A good bird to finish the month with!!

June marks the end of the spring season of ringing, which gave 2,969 new birds. This is almost 1,000 more than the season average taken from 1988-2017.

There will be two at the Obs overnight: Chris & Kay.
