Action....ringing for the TV

A lovely sunny morning down by the River Teifi...

An excellent backdrop for some filming of the Teifi Ringing Group in action !

The filming was for Garddio a mwy, (Gardening and more) a new series being produced for S4C.

The film production crew were visiting the reserve to film the annual Spring migration of our famous Water Buffalo.....and  a piece about birds and our research.
The birds did not disappoint with....

this fine male ....and surprisingly unringed Cetti's Warbler. We have an established population and ringed 25 new Cetti's on the site last year.
Another highlight for the camera - an unringed female Reed Bunting. Last year was a poor breeding season but nice to add a new female to our RAS project and be able to add another colour-ringed bird to the c200 already ringed in the past two years.
