Braunton ringing

As I'm unable to get anywhere at present, (new hip, so no bike or driving for a while yet) I opened a net in the garden this morning, and the first 3 birds I ringed were Redwing, Blackcap and Blackcap! - which were both in the net together both 1st years, one male, one female. After a few of the more expected Tits, I caught another male Blackcap, and a female House Sparrow. This garden has always been good for wintering Blackcaps, but now that I have the opportunity to ring at Velator, I rarely open a net at home. Perhaps I should.....
