Redpolls for lunch!
Whilst out and about monitoring the Red Kites in my "patch" near Rhayader today I came across a flock of some 200+ Redpolls feeding in a small area of confer woodland. As it was lunch time, I had a quick break and erected a net for an hour or so! The outcome, a very satisfying and low-calorie lunch of 60 Lesser Redpoll (including 1 control), a Willow Warbler and a Robin!
A sight to bring joy to any bird-ringer, a full net!
