A Bittern flew over the west bank marsh to Cold Hiendley Res. at 06.05hrs.
A Yellow Wagtail flew south. These birds were closely followed by scenes,
as the team were alerted, by the the ringers, that a first year Barred Warbler
had been caught at 07.40hrs.
Amazingly, only the second record here, after the first was trapped on 26th August 1975!
Here are four classic shots of Pete Smith's hand - 47 years and one day since it
last held a Barred Warbler at Wintersett.
Lots of hard work by Pete & Becky ringing every year which occasionally pays
off for all of us!
