Following a poor winter of catching duck our first spring mist netting session shows a promising start. A total of 43 birds were caught of 14 species. Included of interest were two Cetti's Warblers, male and female, so perhaps a breeding pair, one can only hope. The local habitat is ideal for breeding. A late first winter Redwing was rather nice and a Siberian Chiffchaff of the tristis race, a first for the Group.
