Merseyside Ringing Group published its 2005 Annual Report yesterday. It was another successful year with, for the third year in a row, over 20,000 new birds being ringed (of 95 species, 54 of them also as pulli).
Besides the usual Ringing totals, retraps, recoveries and site reports (Shotton, Woolston, Pandy, Glyn Arthur, Marbury and Anderton) the report also contains articles on 'The return rates of territory-holding Willow Warblers on Woolston No 3 bed, 1981-1990' 'The Waxwing Winter' of 2004-05, and a detailed study of Pied Flycatchers at Prion, Denbighshire 1986-2005. All in all a good read on these, still, (cold) and dark evenings.
