Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 10 July

We had another visit to the Grange end of Holme Pierrepont on Sunday. The forecast suggested it would be too windy but the morning started quite calm, the wind picking up later and forcing an early finish. The team consisted of Gary, Tom and myself, Duncan also joined us later on. The catch was small until we took down, when one net site produced a Long-tailed Tit flock along with a few other Tits and warblers adding 23 to the days catch.

In total we ended with a catch of 56 including 13 retraps, made up of (new/retrap): Blackbird 0/2, Dunnock 1/1, Wren 3/0, Robin 1/2, Blackcap 8/0, Garden Warbler 1/0, Chiffchaff 2/0, Willow Warbler 3/1, Reed Warbler 6/2, Blue Tit 6/0, Great Tit 2/0, Long-tailed Tit 9/4, Treecreeper 1/0, Reed Bunting 0/1. The oldest retrap was a Blackbird from 2013.
