Goodbye exams, hello summer!

Not much to update on, over the last 3 weeks I have been full on with exams so managed to sneak out only twice. Once to get Buzzard chicks, (great stuff) and then a full day to escape the revision. Managed to get 50 raptors in one day however. Had this weekend off for general partying and releasing steam but looks like I could have a new bird for tomorrow. Watch this space ;-)

House Martins!

1st June, off to ring Hirundines! We arrived at a gorgeous farm house perfect for House Martins and there were possibly as many as 30 nests. We hastily put the nets up despite the wind being rather strong and the sun beaming down. Got around 12 birds but with 50+ flying around, a possible return visit could be very productive...
