Rarities (for us) in the Reed-bed

Preceding the Buzzard !! in a Pentood mist net yesterday, - see post below, a couple of other goodies in the nets on Friday...
This first year male Redstart, an annual for us, but not usually in the phragmites.

In the same net round, this juvenile House Sparrow, our first capture on the reserve though we do ring our garden populations.

Otherwise, not as busy as we would have hoped, with no major acro movement yet...just 21 new Sedge and 24 new Reed Warblers. A couple of retrap Cetti's Warblers and two more Reed Buntings colour-ringed to help our RAS project along.
