48 hours of firsts for the year......and CES 11

The first juvenile Ringed Plovers ringed - on Newport beach.
Tonight the first juvenile Pied Wagtail ringed in a newly cut area around the Mallard pond.
This cutting around Mallard pond is carried as part of the general site management by the Wildlife Trust, it helps us by producing open feeding areas for waders, and wagtails before going to roost nearby.
Yesterday the first juvenile Reed Warbler control of the year too....
Back to today.......... and CES 11.
Continuing the season's trend of poor numbers, but of the 40 birds this morning, more new juvenile Blackbirds, Bullfinches, and Blackcaps...
