Wreakes Moss 21 November 2009

Present: JAF

A good catch under the conditions, 31 birds processed, 27 new birds, 4 recent local retraps.

New birds: Wren 1; Coal Tit 2; Blue Tit 14; Great Tit 5; Chaffinch 3; Redpoll 2.

Rain stopped play at 10.15

The very small proportion of retraps suggests a high turnover rate of birds at this site, it is possible they are on the move along the Duddon Valley.

Wreakes Moss by Google Earth. The feeding station and ringing site
is just inside the corner of the wood where indicated.
