CES 6, new birds, new people...

82 birds for CES 6, 61 new and very surprisingly only 21 retraps.
Plenty of juveniles including our first capture of 2 Redstarts in a CES session.
Other first juveniles for the year included 3 Garden Warblers, 3 Reed Warblers, Treecreeper and 2 Goldcrest.
The group is growing and nice to have involved today Nia, the Teifi Marsh reserve People and Wildlife Officer, Dai Stacey and Andrew Hughes.
All three regularly visit and work on the Welsh Islands, from north to south, Bardsey, Ramsey, Skomer and Skokholm. See our post below for our recent visit to Skokholm. Useful to be able to share our island experiences of volunteering and management.
Not only the trainees do the work !
