The first Acros at Roudsea

May 3rd 2010.
Present: JAF, KW.

15 birds processed (retraps in brackets):
 Song Thrush 1 (0); Sedge Warbler 3 (0); Reed Warbler 1 (2); Blue Tit 4 (2); Chaffinch 1 (0); Reed Buntng 0 (1).

Roudsea Woods and Mosses NNR has a fringe of Phragmites bed skirting the southern side, along the Leven Estuary which provides a habitat for a few pairs of Acrocephalus warblers, and offers a diversion from ringing tits at feeders.

Kim extends her ringing training experience* with her first Reed Bunting 
(also with Reed and Sedge warblers)

(*Note how we assiduously avoid using the expression "ringing tick"!)
