The nets were a hive of activity this morning at Ruthven, mostly due to the vast quantity of leaves that had to be removed. There was however the odd bird in amongst the leaf litter, including the season’s first CONW and WPWA.
The wind, combined with fewer apparent birds, meant the day’s catch was a bit lower than the previous couple of days.
Banded 38: MODO, RBGR 2, GRCA 2, SWTH 5, SOSP, REVI, BAWW 2, EAWP, HOWR, COYE 2, CONW, WPWA, YBFL, CSWA, MAWA 4, AMGO 11, NAWA

After yesterday it appears the birds went back to Ruthven. Overall a quiet day with only a couple of small flocks that put in rare appearances in the woods at Selkirk.
