I managed to catch three Nightingales this morning,all of which were already wearing rings.Two were retraps,one was  ringed on the 26 04 2010 and the other on the 17 04 2013.The third was a control,a bird ringed elsewhere by another bird ringer.Only my second controlled Nightingale for New Hythe.I will send the number off to the BTO and in due course they will let me no who ringed the bird and where.

I was hoping to re trap either T677063 or T677041,or both would have been nice.As I re trapped both birds in April 2013,aged six years.If I do managed to catch them later during the month,providing that is they are still surviving.Seven years would be a good age for a Nightingale.
