Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 10 April

A beautiful morning with virtually no breeze and warblers singing in the bushes; what sort of catch would this last visit of the season result in? Thankfully better than expected with 35 birds caught, 19 of which were retraps. The species list was (new/retrap) - Reed Bunting 0/2, Long-tailed Tit 0/2, Dunnock 0/1, Goldfinch 2/0, Wren 1/0, Robin 0/1, Chaffinch 1/1, Chiffchaff 3/0, Yellowhammer 9/12. The most interesting retrap was Yellowhammer originally ringed at the park 4 years ago (almost to the day!). Next week we will be at Holme Pierrepont.
