A couple of productive hours in the Mallard reed bed on the Teifi marsh this morning.
A total of 52 birds were caught, 41 new and 11 retrap. 30 of the new birds were acros - Sedge and Reed Warblers. The others were Reed Buntings apart from a couple of Wrens, a Whitethroat and a Blackbird.
The majority of the Sedge Warblers were juvs but also a few adults undergoing body moult after breeding.
