Brackenhurst, Saturday 6 Nov

We had 50 birds processed on our second visit to Brack today, with about 10 of those coming from the Orwins nets. Quite a few retraps from the first visit two weeks ago, including the two Coal Tits. Other birds were two Marsh Tits (one was two year old retrap), Redwing (it liked the Fieldfare tape!) and four Yellowhammers (all colour-ringed). All the Yellowhammers caught so far have been adults (six), which though it's early days makes me wonder if they've had a poor breeding season.
