Seeing the post about Chiffchaffs, I have also had an increase in numbers this last couple of weeks. 2 ringed in each of the last two sessions but five ringed this morning and probably at least 2 others seen without rings. Two of these birds were very small - wing lenghts of 54 and 56mm. Don't recall any this small before. Full details of this morning's session on the Forum. Also saw a Water Rail but it was too quick to see if it was the one I ringed recently.

Wrafton Pond had 3 Tufted Duck and at least 2 Shoveler yesterday.
