Weather: Sunshine and few clouds, with a breezy s w wind until late morning, when cloud rolled over and a few rain showers broke out - prompting the end of the session.
The mist net set by the bird feeders on Stafford Marsh 'saved' this session. On sunny days, mist nets are so obvious to the human eye...so they presumably are to birds' eyes too!
Up until 10:00, the team had only caught one bird, but by the session's end at midday, 12 birds of 4 species were processed;
1 Blackbird (retrap)
1 Dunnock (retrap)
