Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 22 July

We were back on the Grange side of Holme Pierrepont on Sunday. Another good sized team of Gary, Steve, Ruth, Ian, Tom and I started in perfect overcast and calm conditions but by 0900 the sun was blazing (I know I should not complain after the summer we have had so far) and the breeze was picking up, eventually becoming quite strong. We ended with 64 birds including 16 retraps, not got all the details to hand but the usual mix of warblers including two controls. We even caught a single juv Long-tailed Tit, the first of the year!
