Kestrels and Sand Martins.

It was good to ring a clutch of 3 Kestrels recently. All three looked fit and were obviously being well fed. A short tailed Field Vole had been left for their next feast.
Our first Sand Martin ringing was a success. A total of 35 birds were rung at Church farm , where the walls are busy this year. One returning adult female, D799649 was first caught last year on the 16th July when she had a brood patch. She is again breeding this year. Of the 35 birds 12 were juveniles.
