Across the border - ringing in Wilts

We were joined by Karen a C ringer from Teifi Ringing Group today and she ringed two new species (Tree Sparrow and Barn Owl) further increasing her experiences and getting to see the scale of our nest box projects. She also learnt a lot about nest recording and then we did some top work ringing Swallow chicks and catching the adults with specially sized nets across barn doors. I think her highlight of the day was seeing the flock of 40 Yellow Wags that we will be trying for on the next calm, overcast evening.
