It's that time of year...

Our ringing data for 2012 is all entered on IPMR  (Total of 2,661 birds processed) so a chance now to reflect on the year. 
Follow the links for our controls and recoveries received so far and ringing totals.
Controls 2012
In previous years we have had many recoveries and controls of Sedge and Reed Warblers but new species for us this year are a Pied Flycatcher, Storm Petrel

Sand Martin, Cetti's Warbler and Oystercatcher.
Ringing Totals 2012 
New species ringed for the group last year included this rather photogenic Wryneck 
and a Snow Bunting
The total was well down despite similar effort mainly due to a very poor CES season with far less juveniles in comparison to previous years. See the interesting preliminary results for CES across the country on the BTO website here . This shows poor productivity across most species.
