Stanwell Moor - 30 August 2013

We were joined by MRB and Margaret for one of our infrequent morning sessions at the site. We deployed nets in the reedbed area, the bramble lined spit and the cut through. We could see birds moving about the site but the route taken by birds working the hedgerows avoided our nets by and large. The reedbed was a little more productive and it was good to know that there were still Reed Warblers for the catching (despite the absence of their song on the last couple of visits).

Our most significant find was an adult Blue Tit V791026, ringed at the site on 22/12/2007 as an adult making it at least seven years old.
