Clear,light SW.(0530 - 0900).

The only bird in song this morning was a lone Song Thrush.No Nightingales were heard or seen.

It may just me,but I have the feeling this year Lesser Whitethroats have been rather thin on the ground.In Just under ten ringing sessions this summer,none have been seen in the nets.Which is very unusual for New Hythe.

Birds ringed.

Reed Warbler  1

Wren  2

Chiffchaff  6 (all young birds)

Dunnock  2

Common Whitethroat  (1)

Blackcap  2


  1. Think you might be right about the L Whitethroats Alan, although I thought they seemed to arrive earlier this year. Terry and I had our first Sedge of the year today in the reeds in front of bucket wood. These too get thinner on the ground each year!

  2. Hi,pleased you had a Sedge.It would be interesting what others think about the Leswh this year.
