04/04 Marsh 2018 Ringing Totals

Despite the frequent rainy days we had a better March ringing totals than 2017. One ringer persevered more than others; 27 new Bramblings being the reward. Only a few Lesser Redpoll and Siskin ringed showing it not to have been a good year in our area for the other winter finches. Other notable captures: 7 Yellowhammers, we don't capture many of these, 2 Stonechat, out on the heath and an early migrant Chiffchaff, captured at one of the feeding stations. Blue Tit numbers are about the same as 2017 whereas Great Tit increased by about a third over 2017 totals.
For the first quarter of 2018 we are doing much better than last year with more species and a 35% increase in the total. 40 new Bramblings must be a records, Goldcrest number are down, they appear to have suffered this winter but 4 winter Blackcaps is good.
