Two sessions were possible at Chobham and these contributed the majority of the 245 birds ringed in October.
131 Lesser Redpoll kept ringers busy but 3 Crossbills stole the show. Redwing at 32 just beat Meadow Pipit on 31 but 3 Stonechat and 2 Blackcap were nice additions.
Some recoveries from the redpoll catch suggest origins to the west and north-west and a rapid onward movement eastwards.
