Now up to Mouse 7, yes 7, well only 6 released into the countryside, 7 was more difficult. When moving from trap to tank, he ran up my arm and leapt to freedom somewhere in the spare room. Bunty is demented by the possibility that 7 has now moved in behind the bookcase...
4, 5 and 6 were all released into the wild. How many more are there?
At Boulmer today the weather was 'quiet'. Dull and bright at the same time with a light SW 4.
I walked Bunts around the runways from both ends for little gain. It's not often the patch is as totally quiet as this. The only birds seen were a few coveys of Grey Partridges, 100 or so Golden Plover and...thats about it really. Oh, a dozen late Gannets flew north.
Through the week there was still some light thrush passage with single figure counts of Fieldfare, Redwing and Blackbird all arriving from the east.
