New feeding station.

9 days ago I started a new feeding station on farmland near Atherton. I placed two peanut feeders up and two bird tables and started feeding sunflower hearts. It seems the tits have found this feeding area, with 28 being caught on Tuesday (23/09/2009). Also caught - 2 Blackbird, 1 Robin & 5 Chaffinch.

Blackbird - 2
Chaffinch - 5
Willow Tit - 2
Great Tit - 11
Blue Tit - 11
Long Tailed Tit - 4

  1. Controlling a Meadow Pipit indeed - out of THREE caught!!! More seriously, well done and any chance of the ring number as it might be one of ours (we dont control any!).
    Please use for any Lancs ringing recovery details or any other communication. Thanks. Do check any Grey Wags for colour rings - we've not done too badly this autumn (57), despite missing some good mornings. See LDBWS site for GWE details (also seen on Ribble)
