Vismig/Ringing on Bangor Mountain - 24th October 2013

Worlds worst record shot of 2 Stock Dove!

Did a spot of ringing and vis-mig on Bangor Mountain this morning as the clear skies and light breeze seemed to be nice conditions for a good morning. Ringing was mildly quiet, but managed to catch a juvenile female Blackcap in the first net round which was a new species for my permit, so that's very nice indeed. Also managed 6 male Goldcrest, 2 Blue Tit, Great Tit and Dunnock.

Vis-mig saw me get a patch tick in the form of 2 Stock Dove which flew SE in a steady stream of 234 Woodpigeon. There was also a continued notable Chaffinch and Starling movement SW with 620 of the former and 5900+ of the latter (with flock almost continuous throughout the morning, it was hard to count whilst ringing). Also, 173 Jackdaw E, 198 Herring Gull S, 3 Crossbill SW, 3 Brambling SW, 16 Bullfinch SW, 173 Jackdaw E, and 198 Herring Gull S
