Carlton Marsh - 6th December

Yesterday (6th) ringing session provided 63 birds (19 re-traps + 1 control) They included; 17 Great Tit, 19 Blue Tit, 2 Chaffinch, 1 Great Spotted Woodpecker & 1 Treecreeper. A colour ringed Willow Tit was re-trapped and fitted with a very small transmitter. (Vivien Hartwell/Paul Bellamy RSPB)
A Great Tit Y392667, ringed as an adult male on 18/11/2013, means it is at least 5 years old.

A siskin flew south, Water Rail called and Little Egret was present, but elusive.
