Earlier in the year, one Pica pica got away at Sandy Smith Nature Reserve. Not so this time and this bird is the latest addition to the species ringed list for the site (the 6th added this year so far and the 40th in total).
Above: Magpie (Pica pica).
I can't really remember how it started but I always want to call them Eipgam's or variations thereof. I guess it's my mind working away in a backwards way.
There isn't anything else to report from the ringing totals (low numbers but two retrap Great Spotted Woodpeckers). A check of what else was around produced a sighting of 2 wheatears in the big sheep field.
