Two juvenile Redstarts today doubled our total to four in our five years of CES. Our only other recently fledged juvenile being on the 9th July 2011. - a very similar date
45 new birds this year ..31 last year.
18 retraps this year... 28 last year
Only one piece of data ...but supports the better breeding season this year following a poor breeding last year producing fewer birds to recapture.
14 new Chiffchaffs today and 7 Reed Warbler recaptures too...
