A slow start at Bishop Monkton

For the first time this year we put the nets up at our Bishop Monkton site. It was a quiet day with only 4 new birds and a few retraps. Our best retrap being a male Reed Bunting that we ringed on 28 March 2005 – Making this bird 5 years old.

On a walk around our site we managed to flush out Woodcock, Snipe and Jack Snipe. Later in the week we may have a go a trying to catch a few.

4 New birds and (9) retraps – Dunnock 1(8), Goldfinch 3, Reed Bunting (1).
