Arrived at the reserve at first light to try and catch a few migrants. Just as I finished openeing the nets the rain and wind arrived, so we went round and closed up extracting 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap, and 5 Willow Warblers. Several more of the latter seen flying in from the reedbed. A very vocal Little Grebe and 2 Canada Geese on the pond and a Water Rail seen too. On the flooded field, the Spoonbill still present.
