We caught 61 birds of 9 species, as follows (new/retrap): Dunnock 2/0, Robin 0/1, Goldcrest 1/1, Blue Tit 1/3, Great Tit 2/2, House Sparrow 2/0, Chaffinch 2/0, Yellowhammer 29/13, Reed Bunting 2/0.
It was a decent catch of Yellowhammers and of note were a couple of that were 6 years old, one of which was first ringed in 2011 as an adult. The two Goldcrests were a male and female together (presumably a pair).
Finally, we were treated to Simon’s award-winning lemon and lime drizzle cake – delicious!
