Rushcliffe Country Park, Christmas Eve

We decided on a later start and an early finish to give the birds chance to feed. There seemed to be plenty of birds around generally but each catch was relatively small and we ended on 38 birds of which 24 were retraps. Again most of the birds were tits, only 1 Chaffinch and 5 Yellowhammers were caught, the rest were mainly Robins and Dunnocks. We did have two 4 year old birds, a Blue Tit and a Blackbird - the Blackbird had not been recaptured there before today.
