A Bird in the Hand

As the winds have finally died down enough to allow for some mist netting, I put up a net for an hour before work. 14 birds later I was quite pleased to be holding a new species for the site:
A very tasty bird.

Two were caught at the same time but only one stuck. The rest of the session was typical for the site (retraps in brackets):

Blue Tit 2(8)*
Great Tit (2)
Reed Bunting 1
Woodpigeon 1

*two or three of these chaps were retraps from the very first sessions fopr the site, so are knocking on a bit now.
