Ringing at Treveal

We attempted to ring Snipe at Marazion last night but we gave up after a few hours of nothing and hit the pub with some of the local birders, hoping that tomorrow would bring better ringing.

It did…
We arrived at Treveal at about 6:30am and started setting up the nets in a few places around the valley. None of us had been to Treveal before so trying to find decent ringing spots in the dark was hard!
Anyway after about nearly 7 hours of ringing we caught the following (not huge numbers but some good birds!!!) 2 Firecrest, 2 Goldcrest, 4 Great Tit, 3 Blue Tit, 5 ChiffChaff, 1Wren, 3 Long-tailed Tit, male Blackcap and a male Blackbird. Also Yellow Wagtail andMerlin over
An interesting Chiff-Chaff was caught too, One of the Chiff-Chaff caught had a ring on, after close inspection Mark had ringed it earlier in the week at Marazion! What are the chances!
and Sam, its lucky I could be bothered to take my camera around this time!!!
