No matching visit again, must have been unsettled weather this time last year.
Recaptures: 1, a Blue Tit Pulli ringed 15-May-2017 in box PK32 about 1KM away
Sightings 18 Species: A short list today, seemed to be several people wanting to chat and I was on my own so probably missed a few. A pheasant has arrived around the heath, move here about the right time!
