Cissbury Ring

The morning's ringing on the north scarp was quieter today, with Val, Finch and special guest Linda, mainly due to a drop in the number of Blackcaps. Our catch did have some good variety, though, kicking off with a Spotted Flycatcher, followed by our first Goldcrest of the autumn and finishing with six from the cloud of around 300 House Martins ending up in one of the nets. A redpoll sp flew over, along with 20 or so Siskins, at least 15 Meadow Pipits, two Grey Wagtails and a Raven. A Tawny Owl was vocal when we arrived.
