CES 10 - WWT Llanelli


                      It was very overcast to start and drizzle threatened but didn't come to anything. The second half cleared up to a sunny day.
                          We caught 34 birds of which 17 were Chiff chaffs. As has become the pattern, only 6 adults were caught: 1 Chiff chaff, 2 Blackcaps (both in wing moult), 1 Cetti's warbler, 1 Bullfinch and 1 Dunnock.

                           In between net rounds, we set about mending a net and discovered that Dan and Sam are very adept at this! Thanks to Phil Mead, Dan Rouse and Sammy-jo Pengelly for company and invaluable assistance.
