CES - Constantly Extracting Sedges! - 17th May 2012
A mixed bag of ringing with: Reed Warbler, Sedge Warbler, Blackcap, Chiffchaff, Willow Warbler, Long-tailed Tit, Wren, Blue Tit, Song Thrush, Reed Bunting and Dunnock.
In addition to the ringing, we were treated to another view of the Glossy Ibis at 04.40 when we stepped out of the car as it flew low overhead and then landed on top of a scraggy bush sticking out the water about 40 feet away! If it was any lighter, it would have made for a fantastic photo. It soon moved off its presumed roost and flew across to suitable feeding habitat. A real bonus to waking up very very early indeed!
