FS - Weds 17th Nov

A morning (walk in) session. A bit of a Blue Tit day! with 1 new adult, 4 new 1CY and 8 r/t's.
Also 6 Greti (2 new), 2 new Blabi, 2 r/t Grefi, & new Goldf & Chaff; 25 in all [11 new].

The best was A761442 - ringed as a 3JM on 29-06-2002; duration = 6y.4m.21d.

Birdwatching filled the "gaps" - 5 Fieldfare, 3 Redwing, 9 Goldfinch, Chiff, Kestrel, several Sky Lark over, 4 Bullfinch, ~9 Siskin (or more, very busy & noisy), Gt.Spot and ... best bird of the day ... Lesser Spotted Woodpecker!

Now that almost all the leaves are off the trees, we can go for a full net set-up next week if the weather is OK, and maybe catch some thrushes - if they haven't all passed through by then.
