Wryneck in the Wardens Garden 6 May

An unexpected bonus that dropped into the garden to feed with the nets already open and catching birds. Fortunately, when it became necessary to check the nets and process and release any birds in them the Wryneck did the decent thing and flew into the net  and was ringed asnd released alongside a male Blackcap, a Chaffinch and a Greenfinch.Having already fed for somer time on the lawn, once released the Wryneck flerw sttraight out of the garden and out of sight..
