Our Reed Bunting colour ringing project stepped up a gear today.
While following a large flock of Golden Plover and Lapwings over fields on the north side of the Teifi estuary we ventured along a bridleway near Cardigan golf course, rarely visited. The familiar sound of a Reed Bunting was heard from a hedge along a turnip field. It was quite a surprise to see that it was a bird with colour rings.
A movement of 4km to good arable fields where Skylark were feeding too.
The regular photographers on the reserve are already sighting birds for us. Thanks to Colin Dalton for this one spotted near the main car park for the Wildlife Centre.
If you are lucky enough to spot one of our birds please send details via the contact form on this blog.
