CES 8 - and Reed Warblers make up 22% !
Nice to catch the first juvenile Lesser Whitethroat of the year; one of two caught this session, the other a breeding female.
Eighty birds of 17 species were captured. Of the 18 Reed Warblers two were new adults!
Robins reached double figures, Blackcap and Chiffchaff just short.
More juveniles than usual appear to have feather mite damage, due to a drier season?
Happy girls and Ryan at CES 8, all looking very relaxed...
