Some early ringing down by the target wall this morning produced 2 juvenile Stonechat and the male Linnet pictured below.

The afternoon featured our assembled 10 strong visiting seabird ringing team heading out to Les Etacs. The weather was kind and though the scores are not yet in we managed to ring around 500 Gannet chicks and 50 adult birds in about  3 hours. It was quite an amazing experience. I will produce a full feature on the weekend’s seabird ringing sessions by Mondays blog.
