1st raptor pullus of 2012

This morning, myself and Tony met at 06:00 in an attempt to kick start our raptor ringing of 2012.  Despite the Peregrine chick below being the only raptor ringed today, it was't all bad news.

Firstly because this was a 'new' Peregrine site for us, and secondly because we managed to find 2 active Kestrel nests and a Hobby kicking a Crow out of it's nest!

Other birds ringed today included a brood of 3 Crows, and a brood of Wheatears.  A Chiffchaff nest was also found, but the chicks were too small to ring.
