Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 25 July

The morning started overcast and quite still, all looked good for a decent catch. We quickly erected 12 nets but the site seemed relatively quiet. As the morning went on the breeze picked up and the sun came out but I think the relatively low catch of 43 birds, including 14 retraps, was not due to the weather just the relatively low number of birds at the site.
This is a photo from Mick P of an adult Reed Warbler we caught with arrested moult - 2 old secondaries on this wing and 1 on the other.
The nets to the east of the of the hedge that runs from the entry point to the site have not been up since early in the season so I spent some time clearing some of those rides out ready for next weekend.
