Pleased to meet you

It was (common) quality and definitely not quantity in the lighthouse garden nets this morning — just four birds were ringed: a Common Redstart, a Common Chiffchaff, a Common Whitethroat and this beauty, an adult male Common Rosefinch.

We spent the rest of the day helping at a wader study site — after which we were all treated to burgers and chips :) — and then checking more nestboxes/ringing more pullus (mostly Great Tits again with a couple of broods of Blue Tits). Anyway, I'm pretty tired; it's been a busy day and the net opening time changes tomorrow, brought forward by an hour to keep in-line with dawn. This is what my alarm now looks like:

I think I'll be going to bed...
