Reed bed season begins

Having cleared the rides in our usual reed bed site just over a week ago, tonight was the first night we had the nets up. The first bird caught and ringed was, predictably, a juvenile Sedge Warbler.

This was followed by four more juvenile and one adult Sedge Warbler and a juvenile female Reed Bunting.

No Swallows on the first outing but there are some flying overhead so maybe the next visit will bring the first ones of the season.
