A couple of firsts for the year...

I caught my first Chiffchaff of the year in Hucknall on Sunday which appeared to have a moult limit in its greater coverts but on checking both wings I found it to be asynchronous indicating that some had been lost accidentally and not as part of a moult.


Then today I ringed my first pulli of the year in Arnold, 2 Collared Doves (both FS). However, the nest is very exposed so I don't hold out too much hope for their survival....
