Back in November last year the group ringed 24 Lesser Redpoll on the Teifi Marsh - an unprecedented number since the group started ringing there in 2008.
In the last 2 weeks I have retrapped 3 of those 24 in my garden in Llechryd. As the bird flies it isn't that far from the reserve but a different habitat with them jostling for position on the sunflower heart feeder with the Greenfinches, Siskins and Goldfinches.
This very red male was the latest, caught today in a lull between gales.
On the BTO birdringing blog there is an interesting post about Lessser Redpolls - Predictable migration-not!
