Species number 16

The Redwing

I have now ringed 16 species and just over 150 birds at this site.

Thank you to the Teifi Ringers for their advice on how to catch the Redwing and thank you Charlie for the Latvian Redwing sound, which brought them down to the mist net.

 I caught the first one at 8:30am and then two more at 9:00am.

Other birds ringed this morning, starting at 6:45am, were: 2 Blackbirds, 3 Blue tits, 1 Chaffinch and another male Great spotted woodpecker.


  1. Coming along nicely Ryan. Good start 3 Redwing and I do think the Latvian Redwing sound is excellent.

  2. Yes, was very happy when I got the first one, chuffed with three. Thanks.
