Ringing firsts

I've had great difficulty in deciding which of the following birds (see photographs) was my favourite. 1 day ringing migrants brought 4 new species into my hands & we watched as more and more birds arrived throughout the day.

Above: Last bird of the day was this female Sparrowhawk. I've held one before at Priory (but it already had a ring on) so this was a nice end to the day.

Above: This male Redstart was one of many on site.

Above: This female Ring Ouzel was a really nice addition to the ringed list.

Above: If you made me choose my favourite from the four, I think this Brambling would just about sneak it.
