Sutton Bonington, Sunday 8 April

Calm, overcast and mild conditions for our last visit of the winter. Sue, Alex, Jake, Mick T and I made up the team but the catch was very small, most of the birds seemed more interested in sitting around singing! We did see our first Swallows of the summer along with quite a few departing Fieldfares. Total catch was just 16 including 8 retraps, made up of (new/retrap): Woodpigeon 1/0, Dunnock 0/1, Blue Tit 0/1, Great Tit 1/2, Chaffinch 1/1, Reed Bunting 0/3, Yellowhammer 5/0. The oldest retraps were from 2015. At the end of the session we removed the empty feeders.
