With Tank phoning last night to say that he had good numbers of Whinchat and Stonechat on top of the mound i decided that a morning visit was required to try and get some snaps. The first bird i photographed was a Meadow Pipit, unbelievably this had a ring on it!! Along to the Stonechat area, the first bird i photographed was ringed!!
I can't read all of this ring unfortunately. Top line is possibly LNH BWT.
Second line LONDON
Third line either 69783 / 69723
|Meadow pipit ring - doesn't look english to me|

A great days ringing yesterday. Great in the sense that i got to ring a Cettis Warbler at the farm. There has only been a handful of these birds at the farm over the years. So i was amazed when Mike said that he had just caught one in one of his nets. Well done Mike

A good days ringing today. The triangle produced a nice juv green woodpecker and the Southern edge of the lake came up trumps with 10 Sedge Warblers. Buzzard count was high, which was to be expected with the warm weather. A total of 35 sightings during the course of the day. It seems that these are local Buzzards that are coming in for a look at the tip, leaving and then an hour or so later coming back for another look. We put the total down at 15. Its impossible to tell how many. A great white egret popped in for a look at the lake and soon realised the error of its ways and buggered off again.
