Sutton Bonington, Saturday 26 November

Sue, Gary and I made another visit to the feeding site at Sutton Bonington today in perfect netting conditions, still and overcast. Catching was steady with a peak as a Long-tailed Tit flock went into the nets but was not as good as we were hoping for given the conditions. We ended on 35 birds including 12 retraps, made up of (new/retrap): Wren 2/0, Dunnock 0/3, Robin 0/1, Blackbird 2/0, Great Tit 1/2, Blue Tit 3/2, Long-tailed Tit 8/2, Goldcrest 1/0, Goldfinch 5/1, Chaffinch 1/0, Yellowhammer 0/1. The oldest retraps were from last winter.
