Ringed

Always good to see a ringed bird! We can learn so much from ringing birds like this. If you can get a really good set of photos, you can read the ring number and report it to the BTO...then you get to find out its movements, as does the ringer. Interesting all round!!

Rings

There was also a goldfinch that was ringed at the feeder. He was a dominant character, fending off several other goldfinches to keep his place on the table. Unfortunately i cant zoom in far enough to read the number, but i shall watch closely in the future!
