What a difference a week makes, along with full sun and a fair breeze – result, a less than exciting catch at the golf course this morning. On Monday I tried to pick the best day to go using 3 wildly different and rapidly changing weather forecasts, turns out Monday was the best day! Gary, Duncan and I set the line of eight 18m nets and we had two mixed warbler recordings playing. Catching started quietly and never really picked up. We finished on 38 birds including 5 retraps, 26 of the birds were warblers. The species totals (new/retrap): Wren 3/0, Blackbird 5/1, Blackcap 11/0, Garden Warbler 4/2, Whitethroat 3/0, Chiffchaff 1/2, Willow Warbler 3/0, Bullfinch 3/0.
