Tres bien!

Tonight's trip to the small Sand Martin colony at Attenborough produced only 13 birds in the 9m net. However, the total included 2 controls, one of which was wearing a Paris ring! To try and add a little side entertainment an 18m net was erected close to the ' near deserted' feeders and this produced a retrap Tree Sparrow and a new juv Great Spotted Woodpecker. Some of the team also managed to catch 3 new Egyptian Geese by hand. So a pleasant warm evening and a foreign control can't be too bad...
