Terns and Sand Martins doing well.

 We managed to ring 24  Common Tern chicks at Watermead Country Park today. Using a bucket to keep the birds in prior to ringing was a great idea. Well done Chris!
 There is always one that is just too small. Hard to imagine that this petite package will  make its way to over winter off the west coast of Africa.
Another success was ringing 32 Sand Martins at Church Farm. 24 of these were newly fledged young.
