Twite Numbers Slow To Build Up


N Harbour Wall

Three whoosh net operations early this morning resulted in:
16 Twite (11 new birds,  5 Retraps)
1 Linnet retrapped
1 Goldfinch ringed plus 1 retrapped.

Smaller numbers than recently of Linnet and Goldfinch at the feeding area, perhaps a result of the small neap tide allowing plenty of access to natural saltmarsh food.
