Not a great deal happened during the week. Most of my time was spent in Kew doing work, whilst keeping an eye the nets. The number of birds caught was fairly minimal, a few Chaffinch and a Bullfinch being the highlights. A few thrushes coming in off the sea was nice, and there did seem to be a general increase in birds in the area, but we failed to catch any of them
The only other birds were on Kilnsea Wetlands, where the two Scaup were still in place along with a very dapper drake Pintail. A fairly slow week on the whole, but given the time of year its hardly a surprise.
