Ringing at Church Farm.

Reed Warbler. A ringing tick for me at Thornton and this juvenile possible evidence of breeding.

Plenty of Willow warblers were feeding in the recent plantings, especially the Willow.

A male Blackcap was out numbered by the 7 Whitethroats that we caught. The first capture of the day was this adult male Great Spotted Woodpecker. In total we had 24 birds of 11 species. We only caught one Sand Martin. This brings our total to 30 for the year at this site.
