Rushcliffe Country Park, Sunday 11 November

Libby, Duncan, Tom and myself met at 07.00 on Sunday morning for the first session of the winter at RCP. The weather was calm and bright, good conditions for netting but we knew if the wind got up we  would have problems with leaves.

We had a steady catch throughout the morning and finished on a total of 38 birds caught, 31 new and 7 retraps, but as the morning went on the wind did pick up and the nets started to fill with leaves, so time to take down.

The catch was (ringed/retrapped): Chaffinch 9/2, Great Tit 9/5, Dunnock 1/0, Robin 1/0, Blue Tit 4/0, Reed Bunting 1/0, Long-tailed Tit 5/0 and Greenfinch 1/0.
