During the week I had two ringing sessions in the east scrub between 0530-0830.On the 11th I trapped (16) birds and on the 13th (15) - Common Whitethroat 5,Wren 1,Lesser Whitethroat 3,Blackcap 1,Cetti`s Warbler 1,Chaffinch 1,Blackbird 3,Great Tit 5,Blue Tit 4,L T Tit 2,Garden Warbler 1,Dunnock 1,Chiffchaff 2 and Willow Warbler 1.
I also re trapped two L T Tits,both birds had been ringed in the east scrub,one on 16-09-08 and the other on 02-08-09.


  1. Hi Alan.
    Not a bad ringing session. Nice to know the L/T/Tits aren't travelling far from home, according to your ringing records.

  2. Hi Ken,yes they do usually stay local,although I have one recovery of a bird seven miles distant.
