Frost Delayed Start at Eskmeals 30/01/2010

Please Note Nearest Cumbrian Village is Ravenglass

Present MW,AM, JS.

In my absence a start time of an hour after sunrise was agreed. The excuse was to help thaw the nets. Please note it is a high security area and nets can be left furled. This did not greatly reduce numbers; 51 new birds, 20 re-traps. Included in the new birds were 16 Fieldfare, 4 Blackbirds, 6 Song Thrush and 6 Bullfinch. The remainder were the usual mix with the notable absence of Blackcap, there being 7 caught a week earlier.
