Yarner Wood

A late morning visit to Yarner Wood with Keith Male to take advantage of the shelter offered by the hides in this awful weather.On arrival three Mandarin Duck on the pond, from the Pond Hide predominantly Coal Tits on the feeders with up to three Marsh Tit one of which was BTO rung, Great Tit and Blue Tit a few Chaffinch but not a great deal else and not overly busy, only high light were 6 Long Tailed Tits three of which were BTO ringed (of the ring details visible from the images taken one ring ended in a “5” and another “AV”)

The top hide was a different story it was simply impossible to keep up with the numbers of birds coming into the feeders, predominantly Tit species and a high number of them BTO ringed, lots of Marsh, Great, Coal and Blue Tits showing constantly, Dunnock, 2 Robins, male Bullfinch, Nuthatch, female Greater Spotted Woodpecker, Blackbird and Goldcrest.

Great Tit ring details, one ring containing 439 on lower line.

Marsh Tit ring details, one bird middle row starts with an “S” lower line containing “37”, another bird that showed well ring number starts “V1”.
