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!

Cracking adult male Lesser Redpoll (I think!)
