Attenborough CES Visit 4 - Sunday 4 June

The fourth CES visit of the season to Attenborough was carried out on Sunday by Duncan, Gary, Sue, Alex, Jake, Trish and I. Clear skies and a bit of a breeze from the start. Catching started slowly and did not really pick up until the end of the session when we caught some juvenile Blue & Great Tits. At least some have fledged!

We finished on 42 birds processed (29 new/13 retrap) made up of: Blackbird 1/0, Song Thrush 1/0, Wren 2/1, Dunnock 1/2, Robin 3/2, Reed Warbler 1/1, Blackcap 3/0, Chiffchaff 1/1, Long-tailed Tit 1/1, Blue Tit 5/0, Great Tit 8/1, Treecreeper 0/1, Bullfinch 1/3, Reed Bunting 1/0. The oldest retrap was a Long-tailed Tit from 2014.
