It was already 12.5 deg C when we arrived at 05.30 am, by the time I left to go to work at 09.40 the car said it was 26.5! Catching was slow, we only managed to catch 7 birds and only one migrant, a willow warbler.

This evening we met up with John Richardson and his ladder to have another go at getting some more young herons ringed. We managed to get another five out three nests, including one very large youngster who will be fledged within a week.
