First Meadow Pipits of the Season!

Friday, July 25th 2014

This morning we went up to the crater to strim and remove overgrown branches from the net rides to enable the mist nets to be erected without fear of snagging. After we had finished we placed one net up for about half an hour and although it was a bit late in the morning and very hot we caught the first four Meadow Pipits of the season. They were all healthy juveniles that were ringed and released back on site.

This afternoon was spent readying Foxglove for the influx of visitors tomorrow for the annual summer BBQ. The forecast is for another hot day with sunny spells and we are looking forward to catching up with everyone over a plate of sizzling meat (or vegetarian alternative)!
