25th and 30th April 2010 - Two Quick Mornings

I did a quick morning at Southwater CP before work on 24th while Wes did the same at the Capel reserve on 30th between us catching 13 new birds. These were highlighted by another Nightingale at Capel where there are now a massive count of at least 12 singing males and the first Reed Warbler for Southwater (below).
Also, whilst ringing at Southwater a Robin nest was found containing five well developed young which were also ringed. And Wes did the same, although with a brood of Pied Wagtail that were nesting under the eaves above a front door!

Birds ringed:
Robin - 3 + 5 nestlings
Blackcap - 2
Goldfinch - 3
Reed Warbler - 1
Nightingale - 1
Whitethroat - 1
Chiffchaff - 1
Greenfinch - 1
Pied Wagtail - 5 nestlings
