Black Park Country Park - 26th October 2016

A second try for Redpolls at Black Park proved very frustrating. They were attracted to the audio-lure but just sat high up, usually feeding, above the tape. None were caught. We had some very limited success with Redwing and, once again, Goldcrest could be relied upon to make up the bulk of the catch. There were quite a few adults too.

Ringing team CL, DKL, MRB and Margaret.
