Sedges in the mud!

Our second highest August Sedge Warbler catch this morning with 53 new birds in one and a half hours. Also a Grasshopper Warbler and 3 Reed Warblers. Out of the 53 birds before 7am only 6 were adults.
Net rounds are quite a challenge at the moment with mud to the top of our waders in places but worth it as the drier reed bed on our CES site doesn't attract anywhere near as many acros.
