Its been rather hectic these last few days with a sudden rush of migrants - although it has to be said somethings are still late coming through for instance we seem to be a bit short on Willow Warblers infact Warblers in general. Brendan also mentioned that many of the birds are not carrying any fat in fact many are a little on the thin side - just why is hard to state but the weather has been unseasonal and might be the reason why the birds are late this year as well as having some impact on them as they move north against strong winds.

short update

Permalink 01:24:47 am, Categories: additional photos  

Have been away - and on my return had my laptop stolen with a good number of new images on it - so we are a little short on photographs at the moment.

But for Brendan its been a hectic few weeks with over 300 birds caught - this is a lot when you consider we can only do a couple of sessions a week often short ones after work and it gets dark here daily around sixish -

Some remarkable catches though 90 Pale rock sparrows over a dozen Cinereous Buntings, two Scops Owls, six Rollers not to mention the Ortolan Buntings Wheatears Nightingales etc - to name just a few of the species trapped. We also trapped our first Olivacous Warbler of the season - a retrap from our efforts last year -
