Setting up bird ringing in my garden/woodland

Since receiving my C permit on the 23rd of August, thanks to the Teifi Ringers and especially to my trainer Chris, I am now set up to do some ringing in my garden/woodland. 

My Ringing hide

My first ringing session was on Saturday the 27th with my first two birds being a pair of nuthatch which were a new species for me, taking me up to 49 species ringed. Other birds ringed over the last couple of days and this morning are pictured below. (Bullfinch and Robin were also ringed).
