Attenborough CES Visit 3 - Sunday 21 May

The third CES visit of the season to Attenborough was carried out on Sunday by Duncan, Gary, Sue, Alex, Jake and I. We were also joined by Trish Horlock. Much better weather than last week meant we could get the nets set immediately. It stayed relatively calm and mostly sunny throughout the morning. However, the better weather did not result in a better catch. It was quiet all morning and we ended with 29 birds (21 new/8 retrap) comprising: Great-spotted Woodpecker 1/0, Blackbird 1/0, Wren 2/1, Dunnock 3/1, Robin 1/0, Blackcap 4/2, Chiffchaff 2/1, Cetti’s Warbler 1/0, Great Tit 1/0, Treecreeper 0/2, Bullfinch 5/1. The oldest retrap was a Dunnock from 2015.
