A Nice Surprise
As it was a rare calm morning I decided to open a net in my garden - even though hordes of Blue Tits were mobbing the feeders as usual. And was I glad I did?
The second visit to the net revealed these two jewels, both males fledged this year. As good as anything from the CR jungle, in my eyes at least!
Yes they're real!
TRG have previously ringed five Firecrests including last week's bird, all on the Teifi Marshes reserve, with two turning up in the same net once before, on Bonfire Night 2011.
