Stress relief in the form of House Sparrows! - 17th March 2012
We caught 71 birds during the morning including - Great-spotted Woodpecker, Dunnock, Coal Tit, Blue Tit, Coal Tit, Long-tailed Tit, Nuthatch, Chaffinch and House Sparrow.
We caught 2 House Sparrow including a retrap, which I thought was pretty exciting because House Sparrows are very clever and can avoid the net with general ease. To caught a retrap was even better! Perhaps this was a slightly simpler House Sparrow! A really enjoyable morning and great to get out handling fantactic passerines. Can't wait to get back out!
