Flicking Fantastic

Last session at Woolston on Saturday 19th May was as usual an early start and very productive. Pick of the day were a very dark Dunnock with some odd plumage features. A Magpie found its way into one of the relocated potter traps but best was to come. Around the bed there were hundreds of Swifts and as the morning went on the conditions for a bit of 'flicking' were perfect. A fantastic technique if slightly labour intensive produced 33 Swift. The highest amount caught at Woolston.
