Back to Brack

I made the first winter visit to the Brack bait station today, with Louise & Andrew. We were really just aiming to get the net sites sorted etc, but rather surprisingly managed 45 birds; including 30 in the second net round. This included 39 new (all juvs) and six retraps (all adults). Main species were Great Tit (8) and Chaffinch (18) and we also caught two new species for the site - two Coal Tits and a single male Brambling.

Next visit will most likely be next weekend.
