In total we ringed only 8 birds and these were Great Tit, Robin, 2 Whitethroats, Dunnock, 2 Swallows and a Blue Tit. On the positive side we did identify another net ride that will cut through a hedgerow hopefully intercepting any birds that move along it.
As I mentioned before the 'vis' was quiet and all we had going over were 3 Grey Wagtails, 2 Linnets and 4 Meadow Pipits. There were 60 House Martins and 80 Swallows around but it was very difficult to tell whether they were moving through or not, as they seemed to be moving round the site in a feeding circuit.
I came across the critter below in my garden this afternoon and it is an Elephant Hawkmoth caterpillar. A cracking little 'beasty' and even more of a cracker as a moth!
