Species number 86

At Number 10 on my 'most want to ring' list (see right hand side of the page), I wasn't expecting for it to be this easy to tick Bearded Tit off the list. When news started coming in over the last couple of weeks that there were groups arriving - and staying - in the county, this became a little more achievable.

I have Mark Thomas to thank for this ringing opportunity (and apparently Martin Stevens for finding them). I ringed 2 of these beauties:

Above: A female Bearded Tit.

Above: A male Bearded Tit.

Above: In all, 9 were ringed and displayed (as above) before releasing them. Thanks to Mark Thomas for this photo.
