May - Little Ringed Plover returns

A productive month with the total of 331 new birds of 27 species; well up to expectations.

The number of pulli ringed, at 112, were lower than usual making the number of free-flying birds ringed is actually the highest since 2016.

Little Ringed Plover made a welcome return to the list (the last ones ringed by the group was in 2010) and Blue Tit (81) and Great Tit (43) led the species – but most were boxlings.

Otherwise, Long-tailed Tit was top at 35 followed by Robin on 31 and Whitethroat on 29th.
