Lough Neagh to the Teifi - finally
The first Sedge Warbler on the Teifi Marshes caught this spring was a returning bird ringed in 2017.
Early Reed Warbler singing for 3 days from the 1st but one not heard again or caught until the 22nd. A nice start to Reed Warbler RAS, this was a bird originally ringed in July 2018. In most years the first Reed Warblers we catch are returning site faithful adults.
Once again this spring the Teifi Marshes are an important roost site for migrating White Wagtails. Up to 60 on some nights have been over the reed bed at dusk.
Reed Bunting RAS. The colour ringing is proving a great success, even the ad hoc feeding station in the car-park has already helped us to 24 sightings in April.

The colour ringing of these birds is an on-going annual ringing and re sighting project now in the 7th year.
The above is a short summary of activities on the Teifi Marshes.
A post to follow with updates from other projects from other sites we study.
