Granby, Monday 6 May

As everything's behind this year, this posting should fit the trend...

I went to Granby, with Chris Sharp, for the latest ever netting visit at the feeders in the hope of catching some old retraps. This was partly successful with two Chaffinches from 2010 and a 2008 Yellowhammer. Most birds were in breeding condition. It was also nice to handle a few warblers with Whitethroat being a new species for the site

Totals were 20/15 (new/retraps): Willow Warbler 3/0, Whitethroat 3/0, Blackcap 1/0, Dunnock 1/1, Long-tailed Tit 0/1, Robin 0/1, Tree Sparrow 1/0, Chaffinch 3/6, Yellowhammer 7/5, Reed Bunting 1/1.
