Roudsea Woods and Mosses 28 October 2089

Present: JAF

A good morning with 63 birds of 11 species processed.
The 54 new birds were: Great Spotted Woodpecker 1; Coal Tit 6; Blue Tit 6; Great Tit 1; Chaffinch 10; Redpoll 21; Bullfinch 1; Reed Bunting 7.
(The other species processed were Robin and Marsh Tit).

The day marked the inauguration of a new ride "Quarry Ride" which is cut for three 60-footers in line. Today, just one net was deployed that caught the Redpolls, Reed Buntings and Bullfinch.

Behind the "Hut". This site is sheltered from the wind and is shady and the
Natural England staff regularly put out food during the winter,
thus making this a very handy site at short notice

"Quarry Ride" had its Maiden Session this morning, doing well by catching some 30 birds
