Coleraine Ringers back garden

The final batch from Coleraine ringer Richard Hoy and these were all trapped and ringed in his garden last week. We would like to thank Richard for sending us all the photos, certainly a add a bit of colour to the operation!

Male Chaffinch or Brambling, we don't know as its too close to the camera

Female Sparrowhawk

European Treecreeper or possibly Irelands first Short Toed Treecreeper. Because of the way Richard is holding the bird we can't see its toes.

Mlae Blackbird with a few white bits. An albino Blackbird if you wish
Thanks Richard!
