December 25th (Garden)

I had my small 20ft net up in the garden for a while during the morning and although I only caught one bird it was well worth the effort.The bird was a female Reed Bunting with a nice history. Ringed (Rookery estate Snodland) 20-02-09
retrapped (New Hythe) 1km SE 31-03-09
retrapped (Rookery estate) 25-12-09

Many Reed Buntings now move into gardens during hard weather in search of food.Being only a short flight this above bird will probably fly back to the marsh to roost.
