One of the re-trapped reed bunting had been killed by the sparrowhawk.

Also seen/heard :
Mallard
Buzzard (3)
Tawny owl (3+)
Great spotted woodpecker (3+)
Green woodpecker
Jay
Nuthatch

A feeding flock of 100+ included chaffinch, brambling (70-80), reed bunting and yellowhammer were present but generally flew over the nets into high vegetation behind.

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

Many thanks to all concerned, Mike.
