Four on the Frenni

Out on Frenni Fawr again last night - four species caught! Our first two Woodcock of the autumn, a Fieldfare, Golden Plover and a Meadow Pipit.
This is a juvenile Woodcock showing rounded inner primary tips and wear on the outer primary tips.
The Meadow Pipit was also a juvenile with a good contrast between the new adult greater coverts and the retained juvenile feathers.
And to complete the four, a Golden Plover (one of 13 seen)
and the Fieldfare being ringed.(photos - Mike)
