Bird Ringing

Today I went bird ringing at North River (in Horsham.) 

Arriving at 8:30 we were lucky with the weather as the last few weekends have been horrible.  although it was a bit cold when we got there.

We caught quite a few retraps such as Dunnocks and Treecreeper, with these I could practice handling the birds themselves using the ringer's grip and photo grip.

Me and Treecreeper
Other birds that were caught were Songthrush, Wren and Blackbird.

Me and Blackbird
I can't wait to learn even more about bird ringing!

Whilst there I saw an adult and calling juvenile Buzzard, heard the call of the Stock dove, heard and saw a Great Spotted Woodpecker and Green Woodpecker and saw a Sparrowhawk being mobbed by House Martins!
