CES 6 at WWT Llanelli


Phil Mead, Charlie Sargent and I joined Heather Coats for the sixth CES of the season at the Wildlife & Wetlands Trust's 'Llanelli Wetlands Centre' http://wwt.org.uk/wetland-centres/llanelli/
The normal one hundred and seventeen metres of mist netting was erected in the three rides plus a supplementary eighteen metre net set away from the CES site for training purposes.
The number of birds netted in the first half of the session tailed off after 09:30 as the temperature increased and possibly the bird population sought shelter as did the ringers, with the thermometer indicating twenty-five degrees Celsius.
