Saturday morning saw our final Ringing session on the Big Mound at the Coastal Park for this spring. Its been quite a disappointing season this year compared to last year. We had 20 different species in the nets which is quite a few down on last year, but we still had some highlights including the Cuckoo from the other week and the stunning male Redstart last month. I had another two Ringing ticks in the last fortnight with a Sedge Warbler very quickly followed by a Lesser Whitethroat. These two species put the Warbler count on seven species which is a really good number. The summer weeks will now be focused on a few different projects in various locations but we wont be disappearing from the coast altogether as we'll be starting the Storm Petrel sessions in the coming weeks. Hopefully it'll be a good season.
