First net round was at 10:00 and the last at 12:00. A 40' at the old feeders & a 30' at the new feeders. Some squirrel activity. 28 birds netted of which 12 were new birds (and 16 were re-traps)
Gt Spot 1/0 (a male, see photos), Dunnock 0/1, Robin 0/1, LTT 0/5, Blue Tit 2/6 (incl. 2 from Box 1), Gt. Tit 8/3 (6 new ad.M, 2 new imm.F & 2 new ad.F), Treecreeper 1/0. The number of new GT was not expected; they probably come from further afield than the immediate park, drawn in to the feeders ("civilisation") as the winter progresses.
We need some new 'Woodcrete' style nest boxes of both hole sizes (CJW's are cheaper @ £20) and to have them erected by the end of next month. The 'peckers may leave them alone, then.
Quantity needed - 10, and another 10 for next year? The wooden boxes have been up 7 years now and are quickly becoming useless for nesting.
