Attenborough ringing demo

Dave, Mick and I went to do a ringing demo at the Attenborough Nature Centre as part of the Centre's 5th birthday celebrations. The first net check produced a Wren, after that it went quiet for a while.............quite a long while. We then had a rush on with two Tree Sparrows caught together and then it went quiet again. For anyone not so good at maths the grand total for 5 hours of netting was 3 birds (two of them retraps). We had plenty of people wanting to see birds but unfortunately we could not oblige for most of the day. As usual the staff of the Centre kept us well fed and watered, just a pity about the lack of birds.
