Another Pleasant Session ...

... down on the Teifi Reserve. A not particularly promising looking morning got off to a slowish start, but for some reason the traditional half-eight drop-off didn't happen and the birds kept coming in a steady sort of a way.

By the time I had to come away our total of new August Acros had increased by 20, more Reeds than Sedges this time, which is unusual, and the total of 52 captures included a few bonus birds; singles of Gropper, Redstart and Kingfisher, and 3 Linnets (the previous total for the reserve in recent years being 5).

One very juvenile Grasshopper Warbler, we'd like to think it came from a nest close by.
