January 2014

Against the odds some sessions were possible in January and at least 395 birds were ringed (223 Runnymede RG; 172 Maple Cross RG) with a total of 32 species.

These included several nice ones such as Water Rail and Moorhen at Hilfield, Mistle Thrush at Home Court Farm and Firecrest at Bedfont, with Dartford Warbler at Chobham and Blackcap at Heston garden.

27 Pied Wagtail and 27 Fieldfare showed success with wary species and Redwing starred again with 51, second highest to Blue Tit at 67. Five Lesser Redpoll recoveries give an insight to the transient nature of the late October birds at Chobham.
