Gaia Trust SSSI, Taw Estuary

Still 'raining Chiffchaffs' this ringing session. 2 Cetti's Warbler caught including a retrap adult bird from breeding season. 2 Reed Warbler, both with very high fat reserves. A possible influx of Reed Buntings too. Also around the site, a squealing Water Rail, 1 Blackcap, Kestrel, 2 Mute Swan, lots of Robins. Smaller numbers of Swallows than recently, plus some flyover Meadow Pipit.
