We ended with a total of 44 birds including 14 retraps. The species totals were (new/retrap): Great Spotted Woodpecker 1/0, Song Thrush 1/0, Blackbird 2/0, Robin 1/1, Wren 0/1, Blackcap 3/0, Whitethroat 1/0, Reed Warbler 1/0, Sedge Warbler 4/0, Cetti’s Warbler 0/1, Chiffchaff 4/1, Willow Warbler 2/1, Dunnock 2/1, Reed Bunting 3/4, Blue Tit 0/2, Great Tit 1/1, Chaffinch 1/0, Bullfinch 3/1.
The oldest retrap was a Robin ringed in 2012, we also had a returning Willow Warbler from 2014 and a Chiffchaff from 2015. The reed bed was pretty quiet and only one Reed Warbler was heard singing, which could have been the one we caught, we did see one Swift passing over.
