A trip to Hilbre and another Whinchat.

I managed another, all to infrequent, trip to the Obs recently and was lucky enough to ring this female Whinchat. So far this spring we've ringed three which is good going seeing as we don't catch them annually!

This one was aged as a Euring 5 (hatched last year).

There were a few Willow Warblers and Whitethroats around but Blackcaps have been very thin on the ground with one ringed so far this year.

An enjoyable day with good company and I got home in time to find this beast strutting around the garden as if he owned it!
