Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 28 February

Gary, Steve, Nick and I made another visit to RCP yesterday - but the catch keeps going down!. We finished on only 22 birds, 11 of which were retraps. However, one was a control, and I believe the first ever control the group has had of a Yellowhammer - ring number L203943. The best of the retraps was a Reed Bunting from 2006. A Moorhen added another non-passerine to the list. The full capture list was (new/retrap): Dunnock 1/1, Chaffinch 2/2, Blue Tit 0/2, Yellowhammer 1/2, Great Tit 0/2, Blackbird 1/0, Robin 1/0, Reed Bunting 2/3, Goldfinch 1/0, Moorhen 1/0.
