Bioblitz at Rushcliffe Country Park, Sun 18 July

The event seemed to be well attended but yet again we seemed to have been sited away from the main 'arena', along with NBW and a number of other local groups. Despite this we had more visitors than we had at Wollaton, Jim made a possible contact for another Owl box site and we caught 16 birds of 4 species including 3 retraps. At least we were in a marquee this time so other than running to the nets when it occasionally rained we did not get wet.
(And on Monday, Mick, Meisha and Sara continued to man the nets for the schools event and were treated to a visit from me and all my Y6s and produced a Reed Warbler to order - thanks guys, we had a great day, Pete)
