I had two great mornings ringing at Chew Valley Ringing Station.  On the Saturday morning there was a steady stream of birds including this beautiful whitethroat.

Then on the Sunday morning, I had another two great birds. Firstly, a Treecreeper and then Cetti's Warbler.

Throughout the weekend, II had a great time expanding my extracting experience and generally practicing my ringing.
