Crested Tit (1 cy). Less than annual at the BO, but the few we trap are typically in June when the young birds disperse. Toppmeis 1K.

The new wind-breaker was put up today. It will also shield the pond area from traffic on the passing road. A great improvement to the trapping area!


Observations: Grey-headed Wagtail 1 singing in the fields to the west, European Goldfinch one flew over.
