Twite

Just a shot taken earlier this week to remind Dave & Brian what a Twite looks like! Getting good numbers regularly at the Rishworth feeding station, with over 100 on Thursday not unusual. We've got a young lad, Jamie Dunning, and his trainer Dr.Steve Christmas ringing at the moment which will hopefully add some data to assist in the Twite Recovery Project. This project's rings are blue over silver BTO on the left leg, combination on right. Any sightings to myself or Jamie most welcome:

Great stuff Tim, glad to hear this work is continuing. Any signs of success, increase in numbers?

Very well done. Not a sign of any at Fly Flatts, they have gone. I don't think we have had one sighting there this year ??r. Bad news for up here!

Thats our problem Tim, you,re feeding them too well. Will have to put a trail of seed from your spot to ours.
