Twenty One

As the week draws to a close I reflect on what has been 'one to remember'. The title of this post refers to not only the amount of new birds caught this week but also a coming of age. My 21st Birthday was mid-week with a party at the weekend therefore reasonably little effort was put in to ringing.

Various outings with Heather and one with Ciaran yielded a mixed bag species wise.

1st - 8 Blue Tit
2nd - 3 Herring Gull
3rd - 2 Black-Headed Gull

The others made up of Great Tit, Dunnock, Coal Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Coot and a Mallard.

Another trip down to Fairhaven and a Norwegian Metal ringed Black-headed Gull was seen, along with the Norwegian colour ringed bird from earlier in the week.

A couple of Coot ringed outside the Fylde were seen this week too; all ringed at Southport by Kane.

A trip out with Seumus on Saturday Morning. A full report of proceedings can be found at

A big thanks to Heather and Ciaran for making this weeks' ringing thoroughly enjoyable.
