Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 14 November

A frosty start greeted us as we arrived at the park. Surprisingly the first net round produced only a few birds and each catch throughout the morning remained steady. The result was a total of 58 birds netted, half of them retraps. Nothing unusual caught but 3 Reed Bunting at the site in mid November is the earliest date in the last 3 years. One of the Reed Buntings was a retrap from 2007, it has also been caught in 2008 and 2009. Four more birds were caught by hand giving a new species to some of the trainees, 3 Mute Swan and a Coot.
