The Group held its last wader catch for this autumn last evening. Further waders about and the wind increased so we had to abandon the the session just after high tide. Nevertheless one bird was caught a juvenile female Whimbrel. Not quite what we expected as most would have migrated.

Not expecting to ring many migrants, a surprise was in for the Group last Sunday when 14 Chiffchaffs and 6 Blackcaps were caught. In fact the morning proved to be worthwhile session with 60 birds caught, including two Great Spotted Woodpeckers and a juvenile male Sparrowhawk.
