7th May – A good day's ringing

Rob Duncan and David Kightley report a busy day's ringing, with a total of 62 birds newly ringed, including a Wood Warbler, a northern 'acredula'-type Willow Warbler and three Spotted Flycatchers. In addition, they controlled three Sedge Warblers – two French-ringed birds and one British-ringed. Away from Millcombe and St John's Valley they encountered a male Whinchat near the stonecrusher, Whitethroats at Stoneycroft and the Rocket Pole area, plenty of Swallow and House Martin movement and two Swifts.
