The first Sand Martins.

Dispite a discouraging weather forcast , an early morning ringing session at WCP resulted in a good total of 55 birds. This included 32 Sand Martins, our first of the year. These were mostly adults, but there were also 6 juveniles. Thirteen species were caught, including Chiffchaff, Whitethroat, Sedge Warbler, Blackbird and Reed Bunting. A fly over Little Egret added to a great mornings ringing.
