Winter Dippers

After having a very busy few months, I've finally had time to start checking my winter dipper roosting sites around Montgomeryshire. Despite only a few bridges being checked so far, I've already managed to catch 7, with 3 more to go back for at one of the sites! Out of the 7 birds caught, 6 of them were new birds and one was a re trapped bird. The re trap was originally ringed in New Mills on 16/04/12 as a chick, which is 9km away from where I caught it again in Abermule. Nice to know some of last years birds have survived considering the awful wet summer we had!!

There can't be many people with a 100% catch rate of Dippers, but Sam is one of them!!!!!
