Nest 1A ringing

The chicks at Nest 1A were ringed today.

All four were very healthy and looked stunning (technical term!).

Chicks 1 and 4 are thought to be female and are ringed Blue Y0 (zero) and Blue Y3 respectively. Chicks 2 and 3 are assessed as male and sport rings Blue Y1 and Blue Y2.

There will be more details tomorrow, here are a couple of photos for now.
