Attenborough CES Visit 2, Sunday 18 May

Alex, Duncan, Gary, Sue and I carried out the second CES visit of the year at Attenborough on Sunday. The weather was still and sunny throughout. The catch was better than Visit 1 as we caught the first few juvenile birds of the year and seemingly more migrant warblers had arrived.

The totals for the day were 27 new and 9 retraps made up as follows (new/retrap): Song Thrush 1/0, Blackcap 5/2, Great Tit 2/1, Blue Tit 4/0, Chiffchaff 3/0, Willow Warbler 0/1, Bullfinch 0/1, Robin 4/1, Dunnock 1/1, Garden Warbler 1/1, Reed Warbler 0/1, Long-tailed Tit 2/0, Reed Bunting 2/0, Chaffinch 2/0. The oldest retraps were a Reed Warbler from 2007 and a Garden Warbler from 2010.
