CES 5 at WWT Llanelli

The fifth Constant Effort Site (CES) session took place today. It turned out sunnier than the forecast but this was not a problem. We caught a juvenile Whitethroat, the first of this species since 2011. We are catching predominately juvenile birds now including Chiffchaffs, Robins, Wrens and the now regular long tailed tits. We had one juvenile Goldcrest to add to the one last year.

The ringing was undertaken today by Heather Coats and Keith Vaughton who were joined by Dan Rouse, our keen trainee, for the first half until she had to go to work!
