Day 2 and a hat-trick already!

Last night Carlton Parry, his daughter Elinor, and I headed up to the Ceri Ridgeway again in search of more Golden Plovers to colour-ring. The wind was a bit strong and blustery making the birds rather jumpy but there were a reasonable number of Golden Plover present and we eventually managed to catch 3 new birds along with a Lapwing, 2 Jack Snipe, 1 Snipe and 1 Woodcock.
