… for a session.

12 of us turned out this weekend (probably the Dartford Warblers from last week!) 3 trainers, an ‘A’ ringer a ‘C’ ringer 6 trainee’s and an observer. Due to the high numbers it was decided to split into 2 groups, 1 group setting up at ‘Little Arm and Pools’ and the second group setting up at ‘Long Arm’.

The weather was overcast but mild with a low mist.

The bird count was quite low with only 47 birds processed (8 species) across both sites, no Darwa (Dartford Warbler) this week but we did catch a female Grswo (Great Spotted Woodpecker) and plenty of Reebu (Reed Buntings).

My list for the session:-

  1. Goldc (Goldcrest) x 2
  2. Lesre (Lesser Redpoll) x 4
  3. Reebu (Reed Bunting) x 3
  4. Wren x 1
