During the morning I was at Sandwich ringing.Blackcaps,Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests,were again prominent in the nets,although in much smaller numbers than of late.Just before the rain arrived we took advantage of the large numbers of Swallows and House Martins that were moving through,60 House Martins and 3 Swallows were duly caught.
