Ringing: Swaddywell Pit


Male Yellowhammer

Our exploratory ringing session at Swaddywell Pit (owned and managed by the Langdyke Countryside Trust) this morning was hugely successful! Between 6.45am and 1.30pm, we trapped a grand total of 149 birds. Here are a few pictures.


Tree Sparrow (you can't age or sex them at this time of year)

Yellowhammers


Male Blue Tit

There are lots of exciting plans for the site, including a nature trail which will be established soon. For now, you can access the site along the public footpaths marked on the OS map.
