A session in the fog. Redwings are still coming to audio also Goldcrests. There have been one
or two Reed Buntings in the area since September, nice to capture a couple. Best
bird, the Dartford Warbler, a nice 1st winter male that has managed to miss the
nets over the last few sessions; finally got it wrong today! Several flocks of
Redwings came down into the bushes as usual but were not captured, some
bounced though as they left a few feathers as calling cards. Those that were
captured arrived unseen; possibly singletons seeking company. The Song Thrush
was captured with a couple of Redwings might have been a continental but was a
small individual so probably not. No "summer" warblers today and a single Redpoll dipped
down towards the enclosure but kept going. Nice mix of species, much better
than last year’s matching visit.

pickup much in the fog mostly ID'd from calls, no Fieldfares detected to today, probably missed quite lot.
