South Pennine moors

A really enjoyable day out with Jamie Dunning and Anna Temple Twite ringing on the southern half of the Calderdale recording area. It was good fun, my first time using a whoosh net to catch birds. Obviously I'm not a ringer but it was fun to see the birds close up and appreciate the Twite in their winter plumage. The flock was probably about 50 birds, and we caught about 20 different birds, including a couple of re-traps. Overall a really fun day out.

Species List: 
South Pennine moors: Twite, Goldfinch, Stonechat, Jackdaw, Herring Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull,
