Whoosh netting at rape bait station, site 1, 2.11.15

Linnet new 5
retrap 2

Plenty birds feeding in vegetation just down the hill. In wet weather last week a large flock had been feeding on the bait, but today was lovely.

Also seen/heard
Greylag geese
Mallard
Buzzard
Peewit
Skylark
Starling
Jay
Robin
Blackbird
Fieldfare
Chaffinch
Goldfinch

Mainly forgetting corvids, gulls, non-natives, pigeons and tits.

Many thanks to all concerned, Mike.

P.S. Since this session I have checked a few times and confirmed - when the weather is wet the bulk of the flock feeds on the bait, when dry the bulk of the flock feeds in the vegetation further down the hill. I guess the habitat is good :-)
