Saturday 27th and Sunday 28/09/08

After two whole days in East Riding and getting back very late friday evening, I got up early on Saturday morning to ring at Priory Country Park. A foggy morning that eventually dissapeared. Several goldfinch were around. Not the most productive day, but a lesser whitethroat donated its biometrics in the name of science!

Sunday's trip to Chalton was even less productive numbers wise, but may have proved constructive for Nicky (a fellow trainee). A couple of meadow pipits and a Goldfinch not ringed on this site (a control) were the best of the day.
Above: A meadow pipit - I have posted a photograph of another m'ipit recently. They are on passage (out of the country) at the moment. Mid-late September is when they usually move.

As for your 12 "most wanted", I haven't done 6 of them. And your "done" list contains 3 that I haven't!
