Another CES season has come to an end with a blustery session this morning on the Teifi Marsh. The wind picked up and probably reduced the catch. 41 new birds and 17 retraps with no particular species standing out. This year over the 12 CES sessions we have ringed 561 birds and recorded 288 retraps.
So far this year we have only ringed 1 juvenile Lesser Whitethroat so two this morning as well as two Common Whitethroat was good.
With only 4 Marsh Tits ringed on the reserve in 4 years this was interesting too
Thanks to the Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales for permission to continue this valuable fieldwork for the BTO on the Teifi Marshes Reserve.
