Storm Petrel(s) 8/9 June.

With the weather conditions being favorable & the moon non existent  it was decided to have an early try for Stormies. Teifi Ringing Group ( Richard D ) soon got everything in place & we were rewarded reasonably quickly with a single bird ( pictured ) just after midnight. It became apparent into the very early hours (around 2 a.m.)  that the light was already beginning to slowly come back so we packed the equipment up all in all quite pleased with the nights efforts with the TRG's earliest capture yet. The bird was in an absolutely pristine condition & very lively & was soon gone after release. Hopefully the first of many this year.
