Great Spotted Woodpecker

Definitely the highlight capture of the day has been the Great Spotted Woodpecker. Half morning listening it in the garden without much hope of catching it, but ultimately dropped in the net.

I have some experience with woodpeckers, but not nearly I remembered how difficult it is to deal with this group of birds; scratches and some pecks has been the consequences of ring it.

The captures of the day have been smaller than yesterday which a total of 27 birds from 11 species:

Great spotted woodpecker: 1
Dunnock: 6
Common redstart: 1
Blackbird: 2
Lesser whitethroat: 2
Blackcap: 1
Chiffchaff: 3
Willow warbler: 5
Great tit: 2
House sparrow: 1
Greenfinch: 3
