Farm in West Norfolk - 10th December 2022

 An opportunity to get winter CES 3 in. It was cold and frosty and we were joined by DKH, already licenced to ring Arctic Terns but keen to increase the species on his licence. He had done very little mist netting before and extracted a couple of larger birds as well as ringing most of the Blackbirds and processing some retrapped birds. It was quite a challenging initial mist netting experience due to the chilly conditions. 

The species diversity was narrower than we would have hoped, especially as we have yet to capture any Tree Sparrows.

Total: 22 (9)

Blackbird - 6 (1)
Wren - 2 (1)
Robin - 4 (1)
Dunnock - 5 (3)
Blue Tit - 5 (3)
