A Good Day Had.

Sunday 26th.
With the weather holding out we managed to get into the woods and put some nets up. The feeding stations looked busy and we were not dissapointed. It was a late afternoon start, as we planned to stay 'till it was dark to see if anything was beginning to come into the roost area. From the first net round things were busy as the feeder nets produced plenty of tits, nuthatch and treecreepers. The second round produced just as many as the first,(no time for a cuppa), but a nice surprise was a male Siskin still in moult, the first of the autumn. A last net round as darkness fell produced a nice Song Thrush and chaffinch, which is what we were expecting, albeit in larger numbers. Hopefully it should build up over the coming weeks, all in all 79 birds, 57 new and 22 retraps.
