After a brilliant two hour session on Leith Hill on 31st December in which I caught 38 Redpoll and 14 Goldcrest in one net, including a control of both species (details hopefully to come soon), I felt that it was worth a second go. So on Monday 10th I spent another two hours there, but with dire return, to be honest just one Goldcrest! Oh well, that's ringing!
A visit was also made to Coot Pond, but with the huge amount of water elsewhere at the moment there were only a couple of Mallard present and they weren't interested in the bread I had! The rain and high winds then continued to the end of the week preventing any more netting opportunity, but next week is looking better.
