A productive ringing session today after the first attempt to catch some Swallows last night (3 each of Swallow and Sand Martin).

Today's catch was:

4 Goldfinch

1 Bullfinch

1 Greenfinch

1 Reed Bunting

11 Blackcaps

6 Reed Warblers (first this year)

12 Willow Warblers

2 Whitethroats (none last year)

1 Garden Warbler (none last year) 

34 Sedge Warblers (many very fat and ready to move on - quite a fall)

Retrapped a Tawny Owl from 2017.
