Not quite so busy this week, in terms of both birds and people. However, we had a pleasant morning with a steady flow of birds and it was good to catch up with Jim, back from Bardsey for just a few days. At about 1100h the wind started to get up. The nets were down soon after that and by 1200h we were heading home but the rain was moving in so we'd timed things well.
We finished on 44 birds, just over half of which were Yellowhammers. However, of 23, only 4 were retraps today. Six Blackbirds was still above average and today's highlight was a Treecreeper - well done Archie (now fully branded with his early birthday present) for identifying this without hesitation, despite never seeing one in the hand before!
