Campus Ringing & Habitat Management

Yesterday morning at the "greenhouse" feeding station resulted in 47 birds, 33 new (13 retrap) + 1 control (anyone recognise L732088 ?). A few of us spent the evening at the Norfolk Ringers meeting, an evening well spent with details of ringing totals throughout Norfolk and some really interesting short talks.

Spent most of the day in glorious spring sunshine at our Whitlingham ringing site, pollarding trees and cutting back vegetation to reduce the height and create the dense lower story thicket. Couldn't have been better weather and some really good work done in just a day.
