A Manxie rescue in this first September week too

Warblers the target group.........with a few other species too...!
4 Rock Pipits in spring traps on Patch started Sunday off...
1 Manx Shearwater on Monday, a post breeding season bonus, picked up in the road  - unharmed and handed to us.
White Wagtails among the Pied Wagtail and Swallow roost as we prepare for our early mornings...
Warbler species;-
1 session in Mallard, a few starts in the CES scrub...All mornings before work or evenings after...but pleasing figures and nice to record what is there.  Last September we were blown out...!
2 Cetti's Warbler
10 Reed Warbler
6 Sedge Warbler
33 Chiffchaff
15 Blackcap
1 Common Whitethroat, 1 Willow Warbler, and 1 Garden Warbler.

The week-end ahead will be our last efforts in the two reed-beds for the season unless.....?
