This robin !

Robin  L927111 was  ringed as a juvenile 30th May 2011, and retrapped this weekend 19th September 2012, - 16 months later.
An interesting recapture, showing features more usually associated with first year birds. See these notes relating to "buff tips" from a David Norman blog on moult.

We also retrapped a  4F this 21st July.
Some new warbler numbers from Sat/Sunday...
27 Chiffchaff, 10 Blackcap, 1 Sedge, 1 Reed, and 2 more Cettis.
We are having a great run of new Cettis  !
To add to the variety of the week-end, 5 Dunlin ringed last night on Newport beach.
