A bit more Redpoll action today, had the net open at dawn and again mid afternoon resulting in an amazing 38 new birds including a minimum of 6 Common Redpolls and this bird above which is a control from as yet unknown parts - is it yours ? Interestingly I only retrapped 7 birds I had previously ringed, so birds are almost certainly moving through now. The following posts contain pictures of the most interesting individuals from today. I have now caught and ringed a total of 85 individuals.
I have now found out this bird was caught and ringed at Rye Bay, Sussex in November 2010, birds are clearly moving north.
