19th May 2018 - Salisbury Plan CES session 2

An extremely quiet session with numbers well down on the same session for the past 4 years and if it wasn't for the extra nets the total catch would have been pathetic.

The only real bird highlights of the morning were 2 Stock Dove pulli ringed in one of the artillery observation bunkers and a brood on 9 Great Tits in one of the sites nest boxes.

Most of the rest of the mornings free times between nets rounds was spent looking for butterflies but we failed to turn up any Marsh Fritillary or Duke of Burgundy but did find plent of Green Hairstreak.
