Sand Martin pulli

In July, I met up with Kevin Bower in the centre of Sheffield to ring some Sand Martin pulli!  They were in an artificial nesting bank on the edge of the River Don.  Apparently this is the first year the birds have used the bank, and previously Kevin had ringed 19 birds this year.  We ringed 9 that day, one brood of 5 and one of 4.  Really nice birds to see in the hand and a ringing tick for me.
