Sunday 25th January 2015 :
Linda and I set the net in the main bird hide pool, hoping to catch Reed Buntings coming into roost. A few small flocks of Starlings became a very large flock ( c 600-700 birds ) which treated us to aerial displays before diving into the reeds. Lots of noise, and excitement as we approached the net, expecting a large catch ... not to be !
Birds ringed : Reed Bunting 9, Starling 1
Tremendous birding, terrible ringing !
Other birds seen : Sparrowhawk, Tawny Owl
