Box Clever

Chicks and eggs have been the theme of this weekend and Sunday afternoon was no different. We headed out with John Hyde for a spot of pulli ringing.

John monitors over 100 nest boxes, with a few dozen open cup nesters thrown in for good measure, and is working toward a restricted permit to ring pulli. Although the site we visited today has had nesting pied flycatchers and redstarts in years gone by, this year the boxes are full of great and blue tits. Still we did have a nice treat in store in the form of these two bad boys.
