Busy day

Yesterday morning was a very good session for the Group, with 56 birds caught of 17 species. Of these the highlights were a Green Woodpecker, juvenile Whinchat, ten Chiffchaffs, a Linnet, Sedge Warbler and seven Blackcaps.

The evening session to catch waders on Colyford Marshes was not what we hoped with only two waders caught. Numbers were down and only the occasional Curlew, Oystercatcher and Greenshank passing over. Nevertheless, a Redshank and  a Common Snipe were eventually caught and ringed.
