C ringing activity in the DT2 post code, an account of ringing in and around Dorchester, Dorset
Friday, 9 July 2010
The day job interfered with the ringing and the total numbers suffered.
Overall blue and great tit pulli numbers were similar to last year but there is a bit more analysis is needed before a final judgement can be made.
One delightful evening did include ringing pulli of barn owl (2), little owl (2), kestrel (5) and stock dove (1).
Ringing swallow pulli continues and we are beginning to attempt to mist net some adults – but they are good at spotting nets!
