Haze netting 6/9/2022


A session was prepared for Tuesday early morning, to occur prior to the projection rainfall at regarding 10. As it was, there was a brief sharp shower at regarding 8, and also apart from that it was completely dry, if a little bit gusty. 6 webs were embeded in the area of the Exploration Hut, and also 25 birds were caught, of 13 types. It was wonderful that a great deal of the birds were warblers, consisting of 7 Sedge Warblers, 6 young people and also a grownup.

The 2 Chiffchaffs captured were both hatched this year, one was still in its adolescent tuft, and also one had actually nearly finished its post-juvenile moult. A Willow Warbler which had actually additionally finished its post-juvenile moult, supplied a good contrast to the 2 Chiffchaffs.

A Woodpigeon, just the 18th captured by the Team because 2007, was a good shock. The light eco-friendly eye and also the visibility of 2 secondaries which were browner & & somewhat much shorter than the remainder of the wing suggest that it was most likely a second year bird (age code 5).
