Broadwater GP - 15 February 2013

We were joined by ESA and RMA for an outing to Broadwater. The site hasn't been worked since last May so weren't sure whether there would be anything around. We are certainly finding a dearth of birds at most of our regular sites.

We started with a flurry of Long-tailed Tits,including retraps EBN019 & EBN020 that were first caught together on 22/09/2011. A total of 34birds were processed but nothing that we couldn't have got in our garden, if the birds were visiting the feeding station that is. It was good to have Red Kite and Buzzard over.

Wren - 2
Dunnock - 2
Blackbird - 1
Goldcrest - 4
Blue Tit - 4 (1)
Great Tit - 4
Long-tailed Tit- 13 (3)
