Another stormy night (9/10 Aug)

Last night saw Colin, Stan and myself meet up at the Deernes site again for another Storm Petrel ringing session.
We met up just before midnight and we quickly had the net setup and were ready to see what happened this time.

As before, we didn't have to wait long as just after midnight we had our first five birds of the session. Most net rounds produced more birds but a couple presented us with an empty net. The highest catch was six birds about an hour after we started.

Just before 3am the sky was starting to get light so we decided to wrap up for the session.
In total we caught 30 birds this time round, 29 new ones and 1 control. So that is 50 birds in total from two sessions.
