Today Mick Briggs and his eager apprentice Dave Vincent carried on with the C.E.S. with visit number five whilst George opened up over at the Observatory. The result for the day was 26 birds processed including 25 New and 11 Retraps.
The days catch was made up thus (New/Retrap) - (2/1) Dunnock, (4/0) Robin, (0/1) Blackbird, (1/0) Reed Warbler, (4/0) Lesser Whitethroat, (4/3) Whitethroat, (1/1) Blackcap, (2/1) Chiffchaff, (0/4) Willow Warbler, (1/0) Long Tailed Tit, (5/0) Chaffinch and (1/0) Greenfinch.
Not the worst day ever for the time of year although the breeding season does not seem to be the best ever.
