Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 11 March

Libby, Steve, David and myself braved the constant sunshine and soaring temperatures to put in a session at RCP this morning and had a steady catch with 42 birds caught; 22 new and 20 retraps. We had to turn off the heater in the hut and were in t-shirts by the end of the morning. Birds caught were (new/retrap): Chaffinch 4/6, Great Tit 2/5, Dunnock 1/1, Reed Bunting 4/2, Yellowhammer 2/2, Goldfinch 2/0, Blue Tit 3/4, Greenfinch 3/0 and Wren 1/0.

Only other birds of note were 2 Ravens over the Park, Mick T tells us they were a first for RCP.
