I have access to bird an excellent large garden containing a pond, a tiny piece of original fen and some damp woodland etc. I had invited a local ringer, John Bell, to do some mist netting here. A really enjoyable morning with a final haul of 49 birds of 20 species. Highlights were:-
An early Spotted Flycatcher

At least three Lesser Whitethroats (one released without a ring!)


 And a Sedge Warbler (a very scarce visitor to the parish now)

 Nice too to see birds like Treecreeper in the hand

I haven’t seen either Sedgie or Lesser White in this area before so it is another  indication of how much must move unseen through sites like this.
