The focus has been on garden ringing while travel restrictions were in place.
Several of the Group have been ringing in gardens for many years so useful long term data is being collected. This Coal Tit with abnormal plumage was ringed in 2015 and has only been re-caught once since. The longevity record is over 9 years so a while to go yet for this one.
Siskins are one of the most frequently caught species in March. Over 200 ringed by the Group so far this month.
Many are site faithful both on migration and breeding.
Richard caught 2 Siskins, both ringed at the same time in January 2019 and caught together this year, 2 years later. One of them was also caught in April 2019 with a brood patch so breeding locally. Arfon had the same with 2 ringed together last February and caught side by side in the net this month.
Some recent news of other birds ringed elsewhere
