Sedge Warblers to Stormies

Stormies fact in the early hours of tomorrow!

Our migration monitoring at the Mallard nets on the Teifi Marsh is underway.
Plenty of juvenile Sedge Warblers but more interesting, two new adults this morning.
Quite often we miss the adults going through. Catching unringed adults and not retrapping any of our own breeding Sedge Warblers suggests ours have started moving and these adults are from elsewhere.
This pattern of movement is consistent with previous years.
This is quite a smart wing for a breeding female at this time of year.
Hopefully the weather will allow us into Mallard in the morning after Stormies at Mwnt tonight...
