Stockgrove

A dismal attempt was made on the 12 April at this site but, though damp, we managed to catch a whole 9 birds. They consisted of a retrap Greti ringed in November '06 and 4 new birds -
Wren 1, Bluti 1 and a pair of (newly-wed) Marti. Not too bad I guess.

Hi Graham,

Is 'Wilti' Willow Tit? These could be the only confirmed records of Willow Tit in Beds in the last five or so years if they are! Any images of them please?

Cheers

Steve

The last Willow Tits recorded in the county were in January 2006 at Eversholt.

However, I don't think we received a description for the 2006 record...

They are now exceptionally rare birds - extinct as breeding birds in Cambs, Bucks, and Beds.
