Stanwell Moor - 23 May 2012

As it was such a nice evening we decided to go back to Stanwell Moor. There were fewer Starlings on the fields and the Hirundines were feeding really high up. It wasn't really surprising that we only managed a total of 3 birds as reedbed birds were very vocal but sitting tight and Starlings did not seem to fancy our newly cut ride for their post breeding roost.The evening did produce a first for Chris - never before has he extracted a rabbit from a mist net. He was not particularly impressed..........and neither was the young rabbit.

Reed Bunting - 5 male

 Southern Marsh Orchid in the ringing ride

Totals 3:

Reed Warbler - 1
