Attenborough CES, Visit 5 - Tuesday 19 June

The fifth CES visit of the season was carried out on Tuesday by Mick T and I. The weather was good, a bright morning with intermittent cloud cover and only a light breeze. We did have a delayed start after finding 3 willows each over 40 foot high had come down right across the net ride smashing a pole in the process. We had the sort of catch that has become the norm this year with a total of 24 including 7 retraps, made up of (new/retrap): Blackbird 1/0, Robin 3/2, Dunnock 2/0, Chiffchaff 1/0, Blackcap 1/1, Great Tit 5/3, Wren 3/1, Reed Bunting 1/0. The oldest retrap was a Great Tit from 2014. Very few warblers and very few juveniles again.
