Early autumn catch

Yesterday the Group were fortunate to process 48 birds of 15 species, including a Kingfisher, six Blackcaps and the same number of Chiffchaffs. A Woodpigeon blundered into a net and was successfully extracted by a member of the Group before it escaped by rolling out. One Reed Warbler was caught on migration as well as other resident species.
