Grasshopper Warbler ringed at Chelmarsh

Sunday 5th May 2013:
Linda and I set nets at edges of reedbeds close to the hedges at various points. Lots of Sedge Warbler activity, Cuckoo, Lapwing, Oystercatcher, Tufted Duck. A lovely Spring morning at lots of birds at 7am.

Birds caught:

1 Grasshopper Warbler ( and possibly another one spotted ! ). We'd heard it reeling ... caught in hedge net by the carpark.

3 Bullfinch, 1 Dunnock, 1 Blue Tit, 2 Reed Bunting, 3 Sedge Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff, 3 Whitethroat, 1 Blackcap
