Lots of juveniles for CES 8


The number of first year birds made up for a relatively low number of birds on our CES site at WWT Llanelli. This was Session 8 and took place on 14th July.  Chiff chaff numbers are picking up but there are still few Blackcaps.

It will be interesting to see if we continue to get a high proportion of first year birds next time.

Thanks to Paul Aubrey, Dan Rouse and Sammy-jo Pengelly for their help this morning
