Yesterday our first venture of the season to Mwnt with spring traps for chats and pipits. We were well rewarded with our first Wheatears to be ringed in March.
The later two birds were brighter adult males, having undergone moults producing all black adult feathers.
This morning looked promising for a few Chiffchaff.
Last night CJ and I put some nets up on the marsh ready to furl overnight. One retrap Chiffchaff, this one of last year's juveniles from the reserve. Also our first March Redwing, a great end to the day !
But will it be our last wintering thrush..... ?
We are out on the Frenni tonight, probably our last Woodcock survey of the winter ! !
