Carlton Marsh

Two Willow Tits were calling this morning (1st seat on embankment SE3710 & near the ringing rides SE3710). An adult Dabchick was with 2 full grown on the wader scrape and Cetti's was also sing near the ringing rides. Juv Buzzard and Sparrowhawk were around and Green and Great Spotted Woodpecker called.

Out of 7 Reed Warblers ringed this morning XO76299 was re-trapped. This bird was ringed as a juvenile on 11/9/16, which means that it has already successfully made the journey to Africa 5 times and will be getting ready to depart in the middle of August.
