Ringing Report

What a terrible day with the weather for ringing, although rain was forecast it only started once the nets were erected, gave me a short amount of time to catch a few birds then started to rain. The nets came down and the rain stopped, Never mind it was well worth the effort to catch 4 birds previously ringed at the same spot, these included a Yellowrumped Tinkerbird from just over 3 years ago.

Greenbacked Camaroptera

Amongst the newly ringed birds were an adult and immature Redcapped Robin-chat

I also caught 4 young Olive Thrush, this is the maximum number of eggs recorded in one clutch, so the adults did well to raise all 4 of them.
