When I picked Meisha up at 06.20 as planned the temperature was only -8. By the time we got to Brack it was -10 so after a short discussion it was decided not to put nets up and return home to the warm. After a bit, Meisha and I put a single net up in the back garden and had a slow catch during the morning with the thought in mind that captured bird could be kept warm in the house while being processed. We finished on about 20 birds for the day at the MEA ringing station.
After I had taken Meisha home I caught a Blackcap - the first for the station as was a Wren ringed by Meisha, she also had 2 new ringing ticks House Sparrow and Starling.
