Swallow Success

A quick visit to the Bute Park Nursery, one of our new swallow sites for 2011, on Friday revealed at least three more pairs of swallows for our study, including this little fella:

In keeping with the general theme of swallow behaviour this year he wasn't exactly co-operative and we almost didn't get his year ring colour. However we just about manged it and we are 99.9% sure that this is OGLM who hatched out at the stables in 2009 and has not been seen since he was ringed. Although he hasn't travelled too far from the Stables (propably less than 1km) he is our first off site record of a live bird ringed at the stables.
