This week.

This week has been much of the same, with trips to the park and in my urban garden I managed to catch only 21 new birds.

1 Black-Headed Gull
1 Coot
1 Robin
5 Blue Tit
8 Great Tit
4 Long-tailed Tit
1 Starling

A big thanks must go to "her indoors", Heather, who not only puts up with my work but often assists with the scribing and catching on various ventures.

Today was spent at the Northwest Ringers' Conference (Along with the other members of Fylde Ringing Group)where we heard fantastic talks from various people regarding ringing in the North West. It's fantastic to hear such talks and you always come away with more questions than you went with, also some new found enthusiasm. It was great to meet some new people and talk to some whom I've not seen for years.

Unfortunately I wasn't as lucky as fellow group members in the raffle, but there'll be a next time. Massive thanks to North Lancs Ringing group for hosting the day and for Seumus who drove.
