Rain stops play!

Today was one of the Group's public demonstration sessions, but despite an early start the rain spoilt the session and prematurely brought it to an end. Nevertheless, 34 birds of 12 species were caught, including a young Whitethroat, nine Sedge Warblers, ten Reed Warblers, one Willow Warbler, two Blackcaps and two Swallows to complete the migrants. Unusually for the Group a juvenile Linnet was caught. Other species were Wrens, Robins, Dunnock, Greenfinch and a Goldfinch.
