Postings have been a long, long time absent from this blog, heres hoping 2011 will see me making a bit more of an effort to keep up regular posts. Just a short one to get me started, to report my first bird ringed for this year. A JACK SNIPE that was dazzled using the car head lights while driving with Jamey around the Moss road. Not only the first bird of 2011 but also the first time I have ringed this species. A very exciting catch.
