A duo of Buntings

Took advantage of cold weather this morning and popped out to Charminster to pop a net up. My last visit to this garden site produced a nice range of species and today was no different. Unfortunately the wind made the net a little obvious but 24 birds managed to blunder into it. Was very nice to catch two new species for the site, a Yellowhammer and a Reed Bunting, the latter something of a surprise. Yellowhammers are frequent at the site but not Reed Bunting.
