Finally got my internet back in operation so will be back with the info on the reserve up here. It's been very windy all year until yesterday so got some nets open today and ringed the first 32 birds of the year there. Mix much as before with yet more Blue Tits - 9 - where do they keep coming from! 7 each of Green and Chaffinch, 2 Goldfinch, Song Thrush Great Spotted Woodpecker, 4 Reed Buntings and a fine male Firecrest.

Also present Water Rail Tawny Owl, a few Redwing, Chiffchaff, Goldcrest. Buzzard. Out on the scrape Redshank, Greenshank, and 2 Water Pipits.
