Neither Scarlet nor Common

This splendidly chubby juvenile Rosefinch turned up in our nets on the Teifi Marshes reserve this morning, much to the surprise and delight of all present. With a fat score of 6 (that's fat), and having gorged itself on blackberries, it seemed ready to carry on South without much delay.

A busy morning also produced good numbers of Blackcaps and Chiffchaffs, another new Kingfisher, two lingering juvenile Reed Warblers ringed elsewhere on the reserve several weeks ago and both still in post-juvenile moult, as well as the expected selection of regular residents.
