A better day at Waxham

Following two flunks at Waxham over the past few weeks (catching about 5 birds a trip), yesterday was much more successful. As well as quite a few new birds it was nice to get a good number of returning willow warblers and whitethroats caught in previous years. We also spring trapped a wheatear and a nice male stonechat. While attempting to spring trap wheatears we also found this nice juvenile Pallid Harrier flying over the ringing site!

Total 36 new (19 retraps)
