Four Roe in a row

Middleton Nature Reserve 
Ringing and vis report from Jean.

The vis was a bit better today in between the weather fronts:

Pink-footed Goose 4

Teal 2

Swallow 89

Grey Wagtail 7

Meadow Pipit 85

Goldfinch 30

Reed Bunting 1

Snipe 1 flew in from the west and dropped in.

Ringing was worse! But at least all the birds were migrants:

Chiffchaff 2

Blackcap 2

Robin 1

Meadow Pipit 1

Pete managed - Today’s “highlights” for me were flocks of six juvenile pheasants and four f/imm roe deer on the ringing track.

No other reports and I didn't get out today (MD)
