Attenborough CES Visit 3, Sunday 26 May

CES visit three was completed with a team of Gary, Duncan, Tom, Alex and myself. A glorious morning with hardly a breath of wind. The catch only down slightly because the full sun was on many of the nets - but let's not complain about warm sunshine as we have seen precious little of it for some time. We finished on 30 birds including 8 retraps. It was nice to catch 5 Bullfinch amongst the other usual birds for the site. Attenborough is showing the same trend we noticed at the winter feeding sites; a lack of birds hatched last summer. Let's hope for a good breeding season this year.
