When I received an email from The Mothership, informing me that some avid followers of my blog had managed to catch and ring a Robin, I was slightly worried that I would have to explain the legalities of catching wild birds. However, I was relieved and mightily impressed when I opened the attachments!
Lily and Joseph Kane from South Wales are avid followers of the blog it seems and were inspired to obtain a Robin for a cheeky photo! It seems like they'll also be popping Up Norf to the homestead, so hopefully we'll be able to show them some ringing up close!
I had my first Swallow today, I was in a meeting at school with one of the Deputy Head's - I jumped up and yelped 'Swallow!'......it took a lot of explaining!
