Cissbury Ring

Today's ringing session with Val, Pete and Mya was the site's busiest this year, with Blackcaps making the bulk of the numbers. By the time we'd counted nine flyover Tree Pipits, I suggested it was worth a shot putting the tape by the most open net and lo, the next net round saw two further birds, in the net by the player! A Marsh Tit was another good catch. Other birds included a Yellow Wagtail and two Red Kites overhead, a Willow Warbler, 20 Swallows, two Ravens, a Tawny Owl and a Sparrowhawk.
