Stanwell Moor ringing site - 30 October 2010

A visit today in quite good conditions, despite a slightly lazy start just after 8am, took us through until almost dusk.

A total of 52 were caught with six re-traps (including a Cetti's Warbler), a Reed Bunting (X763004) from the ringing groups nearby site at Wraysbury GP, a controlled Chiff-chaff (BXT506) and 45 new birds: Blackbird (1); Blue Tit (4); Dunnock (1); Goldcrest (4); Linnet (1); Meadow Pipit (23); Robin (2); and Reed Bunting (9). A Water Pipit was also seen.
