Met up with Sean Gray at 07:15am at his Whiteholme Twite ringing site. A cracking morning, lovely sunshine and very little wind at first. After setting up and retreating back to the car, a small number of Twite started to appear. They appeared a little timid and their main interest seemed to be displaying to one another!
A single (colour ringed) bird entered the catching area and Sean quickly pulled the cord. After extraction and recording rings etc it turned out to be a lovely adult female.
Many thanks to Sean for inviting me along and thanks for the good laugh, coffee and pulling my car out!!!! Cheers...
