Catching was steady through the session with 70 birds processed. Highlights were:
- 18 Blue Tits – the highest number for some time.
- Yellowhammers – nice to finally get amongst them this winter with 26 individuals processed.
- Uncommon species – Treecreeper and Bullfinch are barely annual at the site, and it was nice to see them in the hand again.
All of the retraps were first ringed at Brackenhurst, with the oldest retrap a Blue Tit after nearly 4 years, ringed as a juvenile in December 2013 and previously retrapped twice in 2014 at the same site.
