A Turdus Treat - Shakerley, Gtr Manchester - 28th February 2011

Day 3, and Kane took Chris and I to one of his feeding stations located in Shakerley. I was keen to catch Bullfinch, as Kane has had a good number here in the past.
On the first net round, I was amazed to find a Redwing in the net! This was a superb bird and one of my favourites that I have ringed. I think this is mainly because I rarely get to scrutinise this species at close quarters to really appreciate them. This bird was an adult.

20 Birds in total - 6 Long-tailed Tit (3 recap), 3 Goldfinch (1 recap) 2 Lesser Redpoll, 2 Reed Bunting, 2 Great Tit, 2 Blue Tit, Blackbird, Greenfinch, Redwing
