Southwater Country Park Ringing

Met with Sam once again but a change of venue after we made a visit recently and saw 30+ Redpoll, 15+ Chaffinch and a Linnet on the Nyger Feeder! I had also taken delivery of two spanking new Potter Traps. And it was these traps that made the day! Caught a spanking new Moorhen! Otherwise it was pretty quiet the following birds being ringed:

1 Dunnock
1 Great Tit
1 Blue Tit
1 Chaffinch
1 Moorhen

We then packed up as the rain set in and decided to have a go at some wildfowl! First stop was the park lake which was a non-starter. The birds must have been fed already so wern't that keen. We then went to Coot Pond and Sam expertly caught another Canada Goose, this first of 2010!
