At last a day calm enough to open some nets in the reserve: amongst  54 birds ringed were 20 Greenfinch (about time they turned up) 9 Goldfinch, a bunch of Tits (mostly Long-tailed) the first Chiffchaff I have seen in the reserve since mid October, and an immaculate adult female Sparrowhawk, the fifth I have ringed in the reserve this autumn/winter.

Also 2 Red Admirals on the wing!
