Another trip to Caister Beach on Saturday 20th April for Linnets resulted in our best day catch ever !
34 new ones , 3 retraps and a control were caught.
 Most of the new birds were 5's (2nd year birds).
The retraps were from 31/03/12 , 14/04/12 and one from this year,the control was L230482.
Most of the males were at last smartening up into their Summer plumage.
