Ringing at Drayton Beauchamp (17th August)

Caught a large total of 28 birds on sight today (Drayton Beauchamp) including several common species such as Long-tailed Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Wren and Goldfinch and by far the most numberous of the day were the Blackcaps.  Also on the list of species ringed were less commonly ringed birds on the site including a Whitethroat, Reed Warbler, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler and even a juvenile Sparrowhawk!
