Baconsthorpe, Castle Wild Camp - 13th June 2023

One of two Marsh Tits captured. Local breeding confirmed.

A first try at this new site provided 27 birds. The session was short as it was mainly aimed at finding suitable places to site nets and work out the optimum net lengths. This campsite is closed midweek and has a few additional benefits in terms of facilities available.

During open season handy trolleys make moving kit easier.

It was a breezy morning and we only had three doubles up, but still managed a decent result in just under three hours, closing before the morning became too hot.
