Ringing at the Boxmoor Trust

Another great day ringing at the Boxmoor Trust outside Hemel.  In total we caught five species, including 1 Dunnock, 1 Robin (unfortunately escaping us before getting the opportunity to ring and measure it), 2 Blue Tits, 2 Great Tits, 1 Marsh Tit (a good close up view of my latest year tick!), and most surprising of all was a juvenile Sparrowhawk (flying straight into the net without escaping but drawing blood, it was all worth it when it was eventually ringed and measured)!
