Fewer migrants, but a good catch
The Group were up early this morning, prior to daybreak erecting mist nets at Seaton Marshes. Apart from seven Chiffchaffs other migrants had deserted us and no doubt well on their way to winter quarters. The catch which totalled 75 birds did include surprisingly 16 Long-tailed Tits, 10 Goldcrests and 13 Blue Tits. Two new Cetti's Warblers were caught together with a Treecreeper and a Meadow Pipit. Not bad for a morning's work.
