Whooooo... your crest is on fire!

As the Kings of Leon sang...

Trapped and ringed two Firecrest in the garden this morning. There have been a few around for the past few weeks. A nice calm frosty morning prompted me to pop up a net at my feeders in the hope of them being busy. For some reason my garden feeders weren't at all busy so the Firecrests made up the bulk of the catch this morning however a male Bullfinch made it into the totals.
Here’s a proper picture of one of the little chaps.

As part of work I’ve been keeping an eye on some Peregrines in Dorchester which put on a brilliant show. Took this the other day.
