Gary, Steve, Mick P, Duncan and I made another visit to RCP yesterday and had another poor catch. We finished on only 20 birds, 7 of which were retraps. The best of the retraps was a Blue Tit from 2006. It was good to hear a couple of Chiffchaffs singing early on, one of which did find the nets later. The full capture list was (new/retrap): Chaffinch 6/0, Blue Tit 0/2, Yellowhammer 3/2, Great Tit 2/2, Blue Tit 0/1, Blackbird 1/0, Reed Bunting 0/1, Song Thrush 0/1, Lesser Redpoll 1/0, Chiffchaff 1/0.
We plan to make one more visit and then open up at Holme Pierrepont.
