Welcome to the ENRG blogspot. We hope you enjoy reading about the bird ringing activities and experiences of the group.

Tuesday, 27 September 2011


It was a 'bootiful' morning on Saturday, hardly a breath of wind and very mild temperatures. Mist netting was cut short as the sun came up and lit the nets up, it was a pleasant 21 degrees when we packed up.
Birds were a bit thin on the ground , with no obvious ' vis mig' going on.
34 new birds were ringed and for the second time this Autumn no retraps were caught, where have all the local birds gone ?
 The first Goldcrests and Lesser Redpolls of the Autumn were caught.
