TV stars

Andrew, Louise and I had a short session in Andrew's Garden on Friday. Our aim, as usual, was to catch and colour-ring House Sparrows. We also had the possibility of East Midlands Today coming to film us, but in the end they only interviewed Andrew and Louise about nestboxes. (I haven't managed to find this on iplayer - has anyone else?)

Anyway, it was a quiet day, breezy, but luckily the showers were short and light so we were able to keep going. We put up 2 nets in Andrew's back garden, so naturally all the birds went round to the front and in total we caught 2 Long-tailed Tits, 5 Dunnocks, 2 Blue Tits, 1 Great Tit and one 1 Chaffinch but not a single House Sparrow! We are going to have to revise our plan of attack...
