Trying to ring in the November gales...

The weather caused us to cancel the session at RCP on Sunday but we made plans to have a go at Attenborough on Monday morning, despite a poor forecast. It was breezy to start with - too breezy really for any successful mist-netting but Tim had already caught a Moorhen. We put the net up anyway and retired to the comfort of the visitor centre. We finished at about 10.00 with 8 birds and 5 of those had been caught by hand. No prizes for guessing which they were:

1 Tree Sparrow
1 Chaffinch
1 Dunnock
1 Moorhen
3 Coot
1 Egyptian Goose
