Attenborough CES, Session 2, Sunday 17 May

The weather forecast was OK for Sunday so we met at 06.00. The team was Alex, Duncan, Libby, Sue and myself along with Dave Ward for his second session with us and Chris Grocock from Charnwood RG.

All the CES nets were quickly put up and we had a steady catch throughout the morning. The wind did increase as the morning went on but we did not think it affected the catch of 40 birds (32 new/8 retrap) made up of: Chiffchaff 2/2, Wren 5/0, Treecreeper 3/2, Long-tailed Tit 1/1, Blackcap 4/1, Goldfinch 2/0, Bullfinch 3/0, Blue Tit 3/0, Robin 2/1, Great Tit 1/0, Garden Warbler, Dunnock 3/1 and Song Thrush 1/0.

Weather permitting the 3rd CES will be next Sunday 24 May.
