Today started off with a 19 mph NW wind making ringing impossible. Instead some withy cutting took place. A lot of the willow in the withies has been getting so tall and thin that that the nets for catching birds are becoming unproductive. So an afternoon spent cutting down some of the larger trees should help thicken and shorten the vegetation giving more feeding opportunities to the birds.
