Autumn sessions

The Group have had two sessions this month with the view of catching the last of the migrant warblers and perhaps some early thrushes. Today five Song Thrushes were caught more than the usual number, so perhaps that is a good sign. Over the two sessions we processed 24 Chiffchaffs and 8 Blackcaps as well as a Cetti's Warbler one of many this year. It appears the population is increasing after a drop a few years ago. In all 108 birds were caught in two mornings.
