After a wet start we had another great day of ringing at Dermot Doran’s farm in Thomastown. With mist nets and perch traps up, and two successfully whoosh catches, we had a huge catch of 97 birds for our morning’s work!
As well as a massive number of Goldfinches, and good numbers of Greenfinches and Redpolls, 6 Sisikins were caught. This proved a rare treat, as Siskins are seldom caught in these numbers by the IMRG.
Here’s hoping for a good summer and a successful breeding season!
