February 2019 - one of our Pied Wagtails turns up at Heathrow Airport

Only 85 new birds of 17 species this month, of which 26 Blue Tits and 22 Great Tits were the majority.

However, there were several reports of ringed Mute Swans and details of a Cetti’s Warbler, whilst Woolley Firs produced an interesting control - a Chaffinch ringed in Norway; spending its winter in Berkshire.

A public ringing demonstration at Woolley Firs for BBOWT was well received and the trust's buildings provided protection from the strong 30-40mph gusts that crossed the sites.

The ring of a Pied Wagtail was read at Heathrow Airport in March - we had ringed it in July 2015 at Stanwellmoor Gravel Pits.
