Sussex Visitors

On Thursday (15 Sep) five members of the ringing group were joined by Marc and Penny, friends of mine up from Sussex for a week's holiday, for another session at the local Swallow roost.

The evening produced 3 Sedge Warblers, 2 Reed Buntings and 80+ Swallows.

There was also 3 Sparrowhawks and a Kestrel seen flying over the reed bed with one Spaarowhawk managing to take a Starling out of the flock getting ready to roost.

It's likely that next week will be the last week of catching on the reed bed this year so hopefully there will be some reasonable weather to permit one or two sessions.
