Whimbrel ringing - its a gas!

Caught the first Whimbrel of the season this morning with Jane and Brendan Sheils. There are a few going through now but catching conditions are not great with a large moon and windy weather.

Hopefully we should get a fair few more in the next fortnight or so and are hoping to get a few resightings of birds colour-ringed in previous years. Other birds caught were two Oystercatchers, a Ringed Plover, 2 Chiffchaffs and a Whitethroat!
