219 ringed for CES 11....

That was in 2010, today for CES 11 just 28 ringed and 7 retraps. The big difference was that today there was no fall of migrant Chiffs and Blackcaps.
Species highlights today were a juvenile Cetti's warbler and a juvenile Jay.
Between net rounds we were kept on our toes with a couple of calls from what sounded like a Golden Oriole. It wasn't seen or heard again and didn't find its way into a net!
A good record for the reserve was an immigrant butterfly, a  Clouded Yellow, seen flying around the slate waste near the ringing table for most of the morning.
