Chaffinch Site

I decided to try the mist net in a new location. Which is slightly more open and more exposed than the last site.

So far it has been more successful in trapping Chaffinches than the last site. With 5 male and 3 female caught.

 Male Chaffinch.

Female Chaffinch.

Juvenile male Bullfinch (left). Red feathers beginning to grow through (right) is an indication that it is a male.

 And a peacock butterfly.
