Pitsea Catch 13/10

A very Successful ringing session with the NTGG yesterday with three catches processed a total of 569 birds!! including some 400 Herring (inc a belgium retrap!) and 66 GBB's with half a dozen Lesser's and 3 Yellow-legged Gull.

With many of the birds colour ringed, including many of today's black heads it be interesting to see how far they get too.

  1. Great pictures of the ringing! I'll have to look out for those numbers as I haven't seen a Yellow-legged Gull.
