Juvenile Kingfisher and Cetti's Warbler

Our first juvenile Kingfisher of the season in Mallard nets today.....

With Chris's initiative and effort we now have net rides on both sides of the River Piliau, and across it too.
This is the tidal watercourse running through the west edge of the reed-bed, the opposite side to the Teifi (east) and borders hedgerow and scrub............
Great to catch our first Kingfisher of the year, our 25th  Kingfisher ringed in the Group's five year history.
.........and nice a 3J Cetti's Warbler too.

Pictured, an adult Sedge Warbler...the only adult of 11 Sedge caught today. 
Also 6 new Reed Warblers and 9 new Reed Buntings..
.....MORE on acros including Aquatics in a new posting tomorrow....
