Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 23 January

Another poor catch again at RCP today. There seemed to be plenty of Yellowhammers around and a few Siskin but we only caught 2 of the former and none of the latter. Catching fizzled out by 11.00am and the last couple of rounds produced only 3 birds in total. We ended on 30 birds, 19 of which were retraps, the best retrap was a 4 year old Reed Bunting that surprisingly we have not seen since 2007. It was also nice to see the return of some Chaffinch to our nets. The total catch was as follows (new/retrap): Dunno 0/3, Blabi 1/2, Robin 2/2, Greti 3/2, Bluti 1/4, Lotti 0/1, Chaff 3/1, reebu 0/3, Yelha 1/1.
