A few days ago I went bird ringing again at Martin Down Nature Reserve in Hampshire! We caught and rang so many different birds – 58 in total!
My favourite was the male Bullfinch! I have always wanted to ring one and their colours are stunning!
We rang lots of juvenile birds! Including 4 Lesser Whitethroats just out of the nest, a Blackbird, Wrens, lots of Dunnocks and a couple of Blackcaps!
I also rang my first bird! A Dunnock and 4 more after!
It was a lovely day and I learnt so much! Here is the total!
Lesser whitethroat 5
Great tit 4
Blue tit 1
Willow warbler 1
It was a great day and I learnt so much!
