New jackdaw colour-ringing project

We colour ringed our first Jackdaws yesterday, adding to the ever expanding list of GRG c-ringing projects. Three colour rings are on the left leg, with adults and chicks being ringed in the Peterculter area.

Another new project this year is Goosanders, two birds have been caught so far, and have two c-rings on the left leg, and are also colour dyed. Please try to check these species for rings if you’re out and about.
