Thanks and Sorry!

Marsh Tit box at WCP.
Male Cetti,s.

Possible adult Chiffchaff(6)

My first ringing session at WCP since the end of January produced only 10 birds and 4 were retraps. However , the new ones included 3 Chiffchaffs and a male Cetti,s. I will now be the most hated member of CRG as both Chris and Neil are keen to ring the latter species. Oh, and Neil, it was in the new ride you had cut for me!!! One of the Chiffs was perhaps a 6, as it had less worn primaries. (see photo) Thanks to LROS and Russ and Jim we now have some smart Marsh/Willow tit boxes in the woodland at WCP. We will monitor these and hope they are successful.
