Attenborough CES, visit 5 - Sunday 17 June

Gary, Duncan and I completed the fifth CES visit to Attenborough on Sunday. The weather was not particularly good, a brisk wind blowing for the duration and bright sun for most of the session. So it was no surprise that we had a limited catch of only 27 including 11 retraps made up of (new/others): Woodpigeon 1/0, Dunnock 1/4, Robin 2/0, Blackbird 1/1, Cetti's Warbler 1/0, Reed Warbler 0/1, Garden Warbler 3/1, Blackcap 6/2, Chiffchaff 1/2.

Another Cetti's Warbler was nice and a Woodpigeon added a bit of variety. Yet again not a single tit was caught. The session was filmed by FĂ©aron Cassidy and Peter Cutler who have been awarded a grant by the Nottingham University Enrichment Fund to make a short promotional video as well as possibly a documentary-style video on the Attenborough Nature Reserve. I think all 3 of the ringers that were out that day ended up on the film, unusual at Attenborough but probably had something to do with our usual film star, Tim, being on holiday.
