All Quiet on the Western Front

Finally drummed up the enthusiasm (and, more importantly, had the right weather) to put some mist nets up for a Swallow roost and some warbler ringing on Borth Bog. Needn't have bothered! The evening's Swallow total was 8 and this was followed by a dawn catch comprising 4 Sedge Warblers, 4 Reed Warblers, 3 Reed Bunting, 1 Dunlin and a re-trap Cetti's (of the only one available). I know it's already getting on a bit but this time last year we were still catching loads.

Dave Reed staggering back to base under the sheer weight of warblers!!

One of the few, a juv Sedge Warbler
