Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 5 December

The first round produced about twenty birds, all were checked to see that their weights were ok. Surprisingly all were fine including the Goldcrest we caught later in the morning that weighed in at over 5 grams. We finished on 58 birds, 28 of which were retraps, Chaffinch being the most numerous species caught with a total of 10 birds. Yellowhammers are increasing with 5 caught, including a bird from last winter. A Siskin was also caught along with 7 Goldfinch, other than that it was generally business as usual but good to see that all the birds we caught seemed to be coping well with the cold.
