Reacquaintance






A bit of routine box maintenance this morning resulted in me finding this first year female bird. She had travelled 6km south from Dresbury where I had ringed her as a chick last June. She is now roosting with a male bird in readiness for the new breeding season. Her box contained fresh prey and she looked in really good health.
It is always pleasing to find birds that have managed to survive their first Winter.
