Myself, Craig Brookes, Ciaran Hatsell and Chris Bridge all made our way up to Lake Windermere, for our monthly ringing session. En route on the M6 it was looking somewhat a miserable, grey day but none of us expected that a certain bird would soon brighten it up!
And that bird was the first one to be caught and processed.......a stunning female Goosander!
The day progressed fairly slowly, but in total we managed to catch 19 birds including - Goosander, Jackdaw, Mute Swan, Canada Goose, Mallard and Black Headed Gull.
Thanks to Chris Bridge for the photo.
