Starling RAS project gets underway.

With permission to colour ring Starlings sorted this week, along with the colour rings arriving this morning – I’ve just stuck a net up in the garden, and within minutes the first bird kindly volunteered herself to be participant number 1.

I’m not actually carrying out the RAS fieldwork until 2011, for a number of reasons. But I’m colour marking the birds this year to get as many marked individuals into the local breeding population.
