After no sight nor sound recently, a juvenile Cetti's Warbler appeared in the Middleton nets this morning. The office nets were also run and produced 9 warblers amongst the 'feeder fodder'
Middleton & HNR ringing sessions
Cloud cover first thing soon gave way to a sunny easterly morning but there were less Whitethroat around this morning. Ringing from both sites included the following new birds: 1 Cetti's Warbler, 1 Garden Warbler, 5 Whitethroat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Sedge Warbler, 1 Tree Pipit, 12 Willow Warbler, 2 Chiffchaff, 3 Blackcap
Tree Pipit - two over HNR, one of which was probably the bird caught at Middleton
Coal Tit - flock of four headed noisily south over HNR
Could get round to doing the gulls in time c/f spring tide
Routine moths with Lime-speck Pug probably the best
