Great fire of London...

Despite living in south London, my sister still seems to attract lots of wildlife to her garden, includidng several species of bird. Whenever we visit I try to take my ringing gear, mainly beacuse my 3 little nephews love to see the birds close up but also because some of the common garden birds here aren't so common in mid Wales - Magpie, Greenfinch, Wood Pigeon etc.

This visit has certainly lived up to it's expectations, as well catching some of the 'common' species mentioned above, we also managed to catch a Firecrest. This is the first record of one in the garden, and made me wonder what else might have passed through un-noticed? Roll on the next visit!!

Another new species for the group!

1 of the 6 Goldcrests caught for comparison.
