A better Sand Martin catch (5 controls + REEBU control!!!)

On Saturday night Iain and a few of the ringing group arranged to meet up to have a larger and more prepared attempt at the Sand Martin roost down in the UEA reedbed. They put nets up in all 3 areas where we have seen them go to roost and were successful catching 42 new Sand Martins and 5 controls! They also caught 2 new Reed Buntings and 1 control! and 2 long-taild Tits. (Photos stolen from Karl's facebook, hope you dont mind Karl...)

Controls were as follows:
