|The two kestrel chicks that were big enough to ring|
|Jackdaw chick - beautiful eye!|
|Three of the four little owl chicks|
|Top - first year bird - none of the primary feathers have moulted yet|
Below - age 8 bird. At least three different ages of primary feather
Jim has since confirmed that the older bird was born in 2007. She was trapped in the same pole mounted box in 2008, 2009, 2010 and now again in 2012. The adults were not in the box last year when Jim went to ring them as the chicks were already large (which is why she wasn't caught last year).

Overall, a very productive and successful day’s ringing in good company.
