18th June 2010

The young of 3 species that bred on the island were ringed today : - Carrion Crow (left), Wren (right) and Meadow Pipit (below left).
An out of season male Chiffchaff (below right) was also present today, no doubt a failed breeder from the mainland and the fact that it had some growths around the head may have had some bearing on its lack of success.
Ringed:- 2 Wrens, 2 Meadow Pipits, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Carrion Crow
