Jynx

A quiet weekend at Slapton in many ways: the weather wasn't ideal, and the continued lack of a swallow roost meant that ringing was rather slow. However, we did hit a very nice patch when a juvenile Wryneck appeared in the scrub nets - only the fourth Wryneck ringed here since 1960, yet the second in the last 10 years! Gentle entertainment whilst it did the Wryneck party trick.



And here in action (with some - interesting - commentary! That'll learn people to keep quiet when I'm filming)...
