Rushcliffe Country Park, Sun 27 Feb

A glorious spring-like morning greeted us as we arrived at the Park. The nets were quickly erected and we started to catch a few birds but then the clouds came over and the rain started, forcing us to take the nets down early. We ended with 18 caught of which 11 were retraps. New/retraps: Yellowhammer 1/9, Reed Bunting 2/1, Loong-tailed Tit 3/1, Goldfinch 1/0. A nice selection of retrap Yellowhammers, the oldest being a bird ringed in 2007.
