Ty'n y Caeau - 27/3/2015

A long way to go and not even a bird each!
Heather,Phil,Charlie and Chris turned up at 06:30 and had to wait until after 08:30 for the first bird although we did see two get out of the net before we could make it to the nets to extract them. 
Then they came with a rush at 09:10 and 09:30. Three birds for the morning

Ty'n y Caeau 10/3/2015 - A good session at last.

After a number of visits this year to Ty'n y Caeau with a pretty meagre total each time, we had a very good session this morning.
Heather and Chris arranged to have the nets up at first light. The reward was a good early round with almost 20 birds in the nets.

The target species (Yellowhammer) was present in good numbers, justifying the work being done by the volunteers filling the seed feeders regularly.

With the sun coming up we were still catching birds, unlike previous sessions, making it a very pleasant morning.
