CES Visit 5 (Priory Country Park)

Thanks to Guy Anderson for accompanying me to CES visit 5 while Errol is away. Totals as follows: New Adult (6) / Juv (32) / Retrap (2, both adults) for a total of 40 of 11 species.

Blackcap 1/8, Wren 1/2, Chiff Chaff 2/6, Dunnock 1/4, Robin 0/3, Chaffinch 0/1, Blackbird 2/0 (both Female, one in egg), Whitethroat 0/4, Reed Warbler 1/0, Great Tit 0/3, Blue Tit 0/1 (all 4 tits were caught near box 3 but I don't think they came from that box. Why? - the woodpeckers/squirrels knackered that one in!).

Upon arrival, we heard a female cuckoo calling - only a little later to realise that this was a SONG THRUSH immitating the call of a female cuckoo!
