A Colourful Gathering

Last weekend I went to the Loganhurst Ringing Group Christmas meal down in Manchester. It was great to be back in the North West and to join up with the other members of the group for some festive ringing and maybe the odd bit of festive karaoke too!
Over the weekend our wee group went ringing at both Shakerley and Atherton woods. Some great birds were ringed at both sites including a lovely Reed Bunting at Shakerley and a cracking male Bullfinch at Atherton woods. As well as our normal ringing we were also helping out with Zac's Blue Tit colour ringing project.

The colour ringing project is part of Zac's university dissertation that he'll be carrying out next year. I won't go into detail about this, as I'll leave this for Zac to reveal all. However I'm rather looking forward to helping both Zac & Kane with the fieldwork next year!!
