Ringed: Meadow Pipit 2, European Robin 5, Song Thrush 1, Ring Ouzel 1 (first this season), Blackcap 3, Chaffinch 1, Common Linnet 2, Mealy Redpoll 1 (first this season). Total = 16.
Although numbers are quite low (but normal for this time) there are some nice birds in between, Ring Ouzel is a good catch and less than annual in the ringing total. 3 blackcaps was also a surprise at this early date.

There was quite a lot of disturbance to the trapping area today. There was a work crew from our broadband supplier operating compressors to install a fiber cable, and work continued on the new ponds. Two nets by the large pond were replaced.
For the first time this year there was a decent catch in the Robinson-traps, two traps produced 50 moths (7 species ).
