Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 14 July

Alex, Duncan, Gary and I managed to get a session in at the Grange end of Holme Pierrepont on Sunday in what could only be described as absolutely perfect netting conditions. The birds seemed to respond to the conditions and we had our best catch of the year ending on 88 birds including 13 retraps, just before the cloud burned off and the sun came out. It was the usual species caught including all the usual warblers and lots of juveniles this time. The best of the retraps was a Robin from 2009.
