John if you check any birds you have from Europe I suspect that they will be rung with size D rings

I put C rings on them this morning I was putting all the rings on their right foor but when I got to the last the tips of it's toes were missing strange to be honest but no matter I rung the left leg of this bird. I think it's going to be a brown like it's mother and if a hen it will be going no where anyway so no problems.

Going to check the three goldies to see if they are strong enough to be rung. If too big I will put D rings on them as they will not be for sale.

5 goldies eggs due to hatch today 3 have hatched the other two eggs clear. Happy

I have gone for D for the Goldfinches on the guidance of BBC. If there is any issue I will deal with it later but I would rather not have to consider ringing on day 4.

Ian when do you plan to ring using D rings?

I have had the odd one that I couldn't ring on day 5 as they were already too big so with the next size up I will assess them on day 5 and all being well ring them then.

I'm using E this year for my Greenies and Bullies.
So don't care how long they take to decide. I have made my own decision

I will be using the regulation ring size C for my goldies if I breed any and D for my bullies should I breed any also B for my lesser redpolls I think I have that right.
