More Tree Sparrow

I've been working at WWT Martin Mere today, so took a few hours out and helped warden Steve Birch monitor around 70 Tree Sparrow boxes. Although the majority of boxes contained Tree Sparrow nests, most of the young had fledged - either that or the nests contained eggs of 2nd clutches. Some nest boxes did contain young and 38 were ringed.

We also checked a Barn Owl box that contained 3 Kestrel young and a Stock Dove nest box that had hatching eggs.
