CES Visit 2 13/05/2017

Visit 2 kicked off in the fashion that we are pretty much used to, with the first round of the morning catching 1 bird, again it was a Chiffchaff, a returning adult female caught in net 1. The second net round was a little more productive with 10 birds caught, our first Whitethroat of the season was caught amongst them, we managed to go on and catch another 3 Whitethroat throughout our 2nd visit, coincidentally it was visit 2 last year that also produced our first Whitethroat of the season. 21 birds were caught on visit 2 last year with 31 caught this year.
