Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 20 May

Duncan, Steve, Nabegh, Gary and I made a visit to Holme Pierrepont on Sunday in calm, overcast but cool conditions. As at Attenborough some of the rides that are normally dry were a little wet but still easily workable. We put up 14 nets and had a steady catch throughout the morning ending with 65 birds including 21 retraps made up of (new/retrap): Wren 0/1, Dunnock 1/0, Blackbird 0/1, Sedge Warbler 8/2, Reed Warbler 15/3, Whitethroat 0/1, Garden Warbler 3/0, Blackcap 2/1, Chiffchaff 1/2, Willow Warbler 1/3, Blue Tit 1/2, Great Tit 8/2, Chaffinch 0/2, Reed Bunting 4/1. The catch included a Sedge Warbler and Willow Warbler control and 8 very recently fledged Great Tits, along with their parents. Overhead were good numbers of Swifts and a Peregrine.
