Juvat impigros Deus

Jake was jubilant as he approached the net, 'It's another BLACA!' The third of the day and we had doubled our total for the year. 'Wait it's got a white throat!!!!' Following the triumph of 2008 when the Dowager Duchess of Dobcross ringed our first LESWH since 2001 in her back garden, here was another. It also evaded HP's golden caribiner.
The next round we got our third BLACA making 6 for the year which together with the LESWH and two CHIFFs pushed our warbler total to 9 for the year.
David has promised to plant some more Elder, and in the mean time we'll try to find enough scrub for a second 4 metre Ecotone.
