Attenborough CES Visit 5, Sunday 19 June

We carried out the fifth CES visit of the season on Sunday. The weather was sunny to start, with occasional light clouds but it gradually clouded up as the morning progressed. There was virtually no wind first thing but it did pick up slightly later. The team consisted of Gary, Pete, Amelia, Dave and myself.

The catch was steady throughout and a Kingfisher and the first Nuthatch for the site added interest. We ended with a catch of 50 made up of: Kingfisher 1/0, Song Thrush 2/0, Dunnock 1/1, Wren 4/0, Robin 7/1, Blackcap 3/2, Chiffchaff 1/0, Reed Warbler 5/5, Long-tailed Tit 0/1, Blue Tit 2/0, Great Tit 10/0, Treecreeper 1/0, Nuthatch 1/0, Bullfinch 2/0. The oldest retrap was a Reed Warbler from 2012 that was originally ringed at Holme Pierrepont.
