A Morning in the Park

              Heather, Charlie, Chris, Aaron and I returned to Margam Country Park armed with a few extra nets and a bundle of home-grown bamboos courtesy of the Park's Alison Lloyd. 
              Although we had to take down the nets on the railway line rather earlier than expected (for track maintenance) the other nets paid dividends and we totalled thirty-five birds.

In addition to the the pair of juvenile Treecreepers (above) we processed 4 Blackbirds, 3 Blackcaps, 4 Blue Tits, 2 Bullfinches, 3 Chiffchaff, 3 Dunnocks, 1 Goldfinch, 1 Great Tit, 1 Nuthatch, 6 Robin, 4 Willow Warblers and 1 Wren.
The ratio of juveniles to adults was 27:8
