This Cormorant was on the Lake, bearing a ring - despite several attempts at reading & photographing the ring we only managed to read part of the ring number - 524809*
All in all - a good week with 80 new birds, 3 retraps & 1 Control.

Blackbird - 2

After packing up we decided to call into the river at Ambleside and managed to trap a new Dipper.
After dinner we decided it was time to call into Bowness on Windermere to try our luck with wildfowl and luck we were in!! The first bird to be caught and processed was another (hand caught, coming to bread!) female Goosander.
Which made John & a crowed of around 50 members of the public.....very happy.
Along with two Coot
One retrap + 1 control Black Headed gull.
10 Canada Geese & 1 Mute Swan also ringed.

It's aways nice to be in Sean's company - he's a great bloke, very friendly, helpful and we're always learning new things from him.
Many thanks as always Sean for the invite and the above photo.
