It is that time of year when our ringing becomes more nocturnal.
For several years we have walked lowland sheep pasture at night to catch and ring Woodcock, contributing to the long-running research of The Woodcock Network
Other species which roost on the fields are also caught. Our first night out this week and it was good to see Golden Plover back in their usual fields
This evening at dusk we had some nets open on the Teifi Marsh to see what came into roost. At 4pm many thousands of Starlings put on a fantastic aerial display over the reserve and went to roost in the reed bed by Kingfisher hide.
A few were caught
A chilly start tomorrow but at least the forecast is for less wind than recently so hoping for a good ringing session.
