Stanwell Moor - 8 July 2012
One of our rare visits this spring, turned out to be a pertinent reminder why we have not been much this year. A late session down pour, luckily did not effect any birds but ended up with two very wet ringers, working a very wet site. Catch was moderate with 27 birds caught, of which 19 were new birds. We re-trapped one of our earlier 3J Cetti's and also had two Swallow's, including our first juvenile of the year. We also re-traped control Reed Warbler L271161, first controlled at the site on X and X380544, a re-trap originally ringed on 26/6/2009 at the site. This is only the second site re-trap this year from a previous year.
