Prawle Point (Reserve )

20+ Firecrests in and around the Reserve this morning. 3 caught and ringed, but again too windy for effective netting. Also the birds were keeping fairly well hidden in the ivy covering on the trees. Also on site 8 Goldcrests ( 3 caught and ringed ) 3 Chiffchaffs and1 Blackcap. Plenty of Speckled Woods and 1 Small Copper.
