Attenborough CES Visit 4, Tuesday 7 June

We carried out the fourth CES visit of the season on Tuesday. The weather was sunny with occasional light clouds passing and virtually no wind. The team consisted of Gary, Duncan and myself. We had a better catch than we did on Visit 3, the total being 28/15 (new/retrap) made up of: Blackbird 3/1, Dunnock 3/2, Wren 0/2, Robin 4/0, Blackcap 2/1, Chiffchaff 2/1, Reed Warbler 2/4, Cetti’s Warbler 0/1, Long-tailed Tit 7/2, Blue Tit 2/0, Great Tit 1/0, Tree Creeper 2/1. The oldest retrap was a Blackbird from 2012. The drop in Garden Warblers at the site seems to continue, with only two visits left this year we have yet to catch one!
