September 2015

With several ringers on holiday this month, and no intensive ringing programme at Wraysbury, it is not surprising that this month's total is well down on recent Septembers.

Some sites may yet to report figures but the returned numbers show 486 birds were ringed of 25 species; not high but including some good species-groups.

Blackcap and Chiffchaff dominated at 194 and 71 respectively, and there was a range of 7 warbler species. Goldfinch came in third place at 68 in a range of 5 finch species including 18 Redpoll at Tythebarns and 6 Siskin at Bedfont, whilst representatives of all three hirundines showed at Wraysbury.
