Granby, Tues 8 Feb

With impending ringing demonstrations at Brackenhurst and the North Notts RG ringing course at the weekend, Duncan and I made the best of a gap in the weather last Tuesday to have a session at the Granby feeders. We managed 49 birds after a quiet start. With the calm and cold weather, I expected a few mores. Two-thirds of the catch was tits, with 26 of the birds being caught after midday. Yellowhammers weren't much in evidence, with only two ringed, but nice to see there are still Wrens around. Retrap highlights were a six year old a Dunnock and Great Tit. The total catch was (new retrap): Dunnock 2/2, Wren 1/0, Robin 2/0, Great Tit 11/8, Blue Tit 4/9, Tree Sparrow 4/0, Chaffinch 2/1, Reed Bunting 1/0, Yellowhammer 2/0.
