Colour-ringed Yellowhammers

As many of you will know, over the 2008-9 winter season we began colour-ringing Yellowhammers at Brackenhurst College near Southwell. One of the main reasons for doing this was to make use of all the students who are looking for research projects (well done Tina for having yours approved!).

Anyway, we have just had our first two resightings. One was on Andrew's feeder on campus and Rory saw the other near Morton which is over a mile from the ringing site.

If any of you are looking for somewhere to go for a Sunday afternoon stroll, it's a great area and the more people we get scrutinising Yellowhammer legs the better.
