A Frosty Morning brings a second Twite from Scotland


North Harbour Wall
Twite: 40 birds around the feeding area this morning. Of these, 35 were trapped (5 Retraps from previous winter periods, 2 'controls', 22 new birds ringed).  The 'controlled' birds were two individuals trapped and ringed at Machrihanish Bird Obs during this autumn - 1 previously caught 24/25 Oct plus 1 additional.
Goldfinch : 2 retrapped, 1 of these ringed at Middleton on 23/08/2010 & the other at Heysham on 22/08/2010
Red throated diver: 1 floating out with the tide reported to me by a visiting birder.
