27th August

Yesterday afternoon saw the first scarcity of the autumn being found in the form of a greenish warbler by Paul Cook. Nets were opened soon after sunrise. It was fairly quiet with a garden warbler trapped and then the greenish warbler found its way into one of the nets. This is a new ringing species at the site after last years bird escaped from the nets, not once but twice. The bird showed well for a few hours after release in the Big Mound.
