August Ringing Totals

A total of 211 birds of 27 species ringed in August. It has been a very poor month for ringing as this is the 3rd lowest ever total for Landguard for August. Previous years in 2011 and 2001 saw 195 and 196 birds ringed, respectively. Highlights being 2 Icterine Warbler and 1 Cuckoo.

Can we hope for much better ringing totals for the coming months? Only time will tell.
