Holme Pierrepont, Sunday 11 September

Sue, Duncan, Gary and I made a visit to the Skylarks end of Holme Pierrepont setting all the usual nets. The weather conditions were still but clear and this was reflected in the catch, which started very well but dropped off quickly as the sun got higher.

In total we ended with a catch of 73 including 15 retraps, made up of (new/retrap): Song Thrush 1/0, Wren 3/1, Dunnock 1/0, Robin 1/1, Blackcap 28/4, Chiffchaff 11/2, Whitethroat 3/0, Lesser Whitethroat 2/0, Blue Tit 1/0, Great Tit 0/1, Tree Creeper 1/0, Long-tailed Tit 3/6, Bullfinch 1/0, Goldfinch 1/0, Reed Bunting 1/0.

The oldest retrap was a Blackcap from 2013, we had not previously caught this bird since ringing and it was the only adult warbler caught. The catch of warblers was very similar to that made at Ramsdale during the week.
