8th and 9th April 2010 - Leechpool and Southwater

A couple of impromptu sessions led to a meagre 20 birds being caught including 8 retraps.

Highlights at Leechpool and Owlbeech Woods, with Alex, were three new Chiffchaffs and a retrap pair of Long-tailed Tit that we then managed to follow back to their nest! Also caught a female Robin with a full brood patch. Sightings included a pair of Crossbill feeding two newly fledged young, a Willow Warbler, at least two pairs of Yellowhammer and a few Siskin and Redpoll.

Highlights at Southwater CP, with Jake, were a new Chiffchaff and a new female Blackcap. Sightings included a Redpoll, a Willow Warbler and at least 4 singing Blackcap.

Robin - 3 (1)
Blackcap - 1
Blue Tit - 1
Dunno - (1)
Great Tit - (3)
Chiffchaff - 4 (1)
Wren - 3
Long-tailed Tit - (2)
