Two firsts for the garden....

- a Treecreeper and using five AA rings consecutively !
Not many birds needing an AA ring have been caught in the garden in the past, so it was a bit of a surprise today when five consecutive birds had rings off the blue string - the Treecreeper, then 2 Chiffchaffs, a Goldcrest and a Wren.
A Bullfinch had started the morning off nicely and retrap Goldcrest, Great Spotted Woodpecker and Blackbird all ringed last year were good too.
The Siskins seem to have gone now.
With migration getting underway, our site in the dunes down at the Teifi estuary will now take over from garden sessions.
The marshy area that runs through the dunes is looking wonderful a the moment with the Marsh Marigolds out - an area that caught us some good early migrants last year.
