CES 6 AT WWT LLANELLI


A disappointing CES 6 despite good weather with low wind. We caught 22 birds and of these 13 were juveniles which made up for the low numbers somewhat.  We had our first Cetti's warbler of the year, an adult, however only one Chiff chaff, a juvenile. No Blackcaps again which is unusual for this site.
