August 6th Sandwich Bay)

Green Woodpecker (juv) Willow Warbler and Wood Warbler.

I spent this morning ringing at Sandwich.It was a rather chilly start,but later warmed up nicely.Although the night sky was clear,there was a good fall of birds.Most of which were Willow Warblers,with 85 ringed.The best bird caught in the nets was a nice Wood Warbler.the third so far this autumn.Late July,early August is a good time to see this species in Kent.

  1. Hi Alan. Been a busy few days for you lately with your ringing, especially Willow Warblers. Like the B/W/Stilt shots. I envy you at being able to get there to see them.
