Losing Control!

After a few days of heightened expectation Andre and I returned to the finch field first thing this morning armed with loads of clean bird bags. As it turns out there are actually two finch fields, the one we put the nets in and the ones the finches were using!! After a couple of attempts at persuading them to join us in the original turnip field we gave up with just 1 Blackbird, 1 Great Tit, 1 Blue Tit, 1 Dunnock and 3 Chaffinches for all our efforts. Still at least Andre was pleased - he'd never ringed a Dunnock before and we got to try out the new ring size too - every cloud!
