Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 17 July

Sue, Gary and I made the first visit of the year to the Blott’s end of Holme Pierrepont. With such a small team and all the rides to clear we put up just 6 nets but did clear the rides for all the other nets.

The conditions were a bit bright with the patchy cloud cover clearing to full sun and an increasing breeze. The catch was relatively small as expected with the limited number of nets. We ended with a catch of 36 including 1 retrap, made up of (new/retrap): Blackbird 1/0, Dunnock 2/0, Wren 4/0, Robin 4/0, Blackcap 6/0, Whitethroat 1/0, Lesser Whitethroat 1/0, Chiffchaff 4/0, Willow Warbler 2/0, Reed Warbler 9/1, Blue Tit 1/0. The only retrap was a Reed Warbler from 2013.
