Windy in the Wetland

After such a distasterous ringing weekend, I was desperate to feel the wind on the nets and the water inside the wellies. So I set off to Cosmeston to get ready for Reed Warbler migration time. Wind blown nets dont often catch much and this time was no exception- a measly five birds including two retraps although it was nice to see one of the old R546 gang still in action (ringed in 2007).

  1. R546's - classic ring string, right up there with the P223's. Magic.
