Ringing in Askernish

Post by YvonneB » 18 Jun 2012, 20:45

The relatively calm weather allowed us to get some nets up here today.

We captured a Lesser Redpoll with a brood patch, a male Willow Warbler, 2 male Goldfinches, juvenile Song Thrushes and the usual Blackbirds, Wren, House Sparrows and Starlings.

A Redshank landed in the garden. We had great views of the local Short-eared Owl as it flew low over the meadow inbetween our house and next door.

There was a Sand Martin at Askernish beach and also Eider with young.
