End of season

Today was the last day of autumn standardised ringing; we celebrated with a fantastic meal, a record-breaking cake and a Lesser Spotted Woodpecker.

Each number represents a record broken this year — can you guess them all?

Only an hour short of being the last bird ringed this season...

That award went to.... a Blue Tit. Obviously.

Now the fun* starts — it's open season with the MP3 player and we're only just over a thousand birds short of 40,000 for the year. 11-hundred redpolls, anyone?

*Actually, now the net-fixing and the cleaning starts; but hopefully we'll be able to put a net in the garden in between times.
