Stanwell Moor ringing - 2 Jan 2011

A few hours only produced 3 new Reed Buntings (all colour ringed) and a Dunnock, plus a re-trap Wren. No Meadow Pipits apart from an odd two were present, again the cold weather presumably having moved the large flock on. We did, frustratingly have two Water Pipits immediately in front of the net, bathing, but by the time the ID was confirmed, before we could manage a small flush they flow off along the line of the net and away to the adjacent fields near the reservoir.
