A Sunny Morning at Kenfig

This morning I accepted an invitation from Chris Newberry to join him for a ringing session at Kenfig. We set up 180' of net in what is the (recently cleared) CES ride and a further 140' in a newly created ringing ride that had been cut by David Carrington, the Reserve Warden. We set up an MP3 player and speakers in both areas.
The session got off to a rather slow start but picked up at 10:15 when a small flock of Long-tailed tits visited the CES ride.

A little later a Goldcrest and a Treecreeper followed the tits into the same nets.

By noon we had totalled twenty-five birds : 14 Long-tailed tits, 2 Treecreepers, 2 Goldcrests, 3 Blue tits, 2 Reed Buntings, a Robin and a Cetti's Warbler.
