weather permits a good catch

With the disappointment of having to cancel the last couple of sessions we were able to get a catch in before the end of June. This took place yesterday with a good morning's catch of 95 birds of 19 species. The majority were juveniles as expected at this time of the year and including several summer migrants of Swallow, Chiffchaff, Reed Warbler and Blackcap. The first juvenile Kingfisher of the year was caught, as well as, several finches and a juvenile Cetti's Warbler, suggesting it bred on the site.
