A 'crack' team ! consisting of Dave, Tony and myself was assembled for a roost session the following night (Sunday). About 70 were over the pits and most went in about 19:30, also approximately another 50/60 were seen flying high over the pits but alas kept on going.
39 Swallow were ringed, 10 were adults, also 3 Reed Bunting and a Greenfinch.
A Cettis Warbler was giving it the' biggun ' while we were there and a Tawny owl started up as it got dark.
Another dead Water Rail was found, the second this year ! and no I still haven't managed to ring one yet !!!!
In the garden a superb Privet Hawkmoth Caterpillar was found in the hedge near to a lilac, a very striking beast.
