230 ringed today...stormies, and terns tonight.

BTO Cymru /Teifi RG Workshop.

With ringing and assessing at four sites this morning a number of birds were caught too. A successful morning with totals of 140 new birds at Ty Rhyg and 90 new birds on the marsh. Visiting ringers were involved in our CES, and handling different species from their regular sites.

Here, Charlie at our Mallard site with a Sedge Warbler, caught in one of our two panel nets -
Charlie gaining both experience with Reed Warblers and the use of the nets.....he finished the morning cutting a new two panel net ride for us.

The weather this evening slowed us down a bit, but a team has gone to the Dyfi with Tony Cross to catch terns, and a team has gone to Strumble Head to try for Storm Petrels...
