|Measuring up a Chiffchaff.|
Species for the morning included: Blackcap, Blackbird, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Robin, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Chaffinch, Long-Tailed Tit and a camera shy Wren. There were a good number of newly fledged Blue Tits that were ringed as well as a very cute little Long-Tailed Tit fledgling (my favourite garden bird).

A good morning's ringing was had, I personally ringed 10 new birds and processed 1 retrap. I was accompanied by fellow trainees Ian Hainsworth and Cedwyn Davies and their trainer Heather Coats.
