01/05 Thatcham Marsh LNR CES 2021.01 of 12

 Location: Thatcham Marsh LNR Constant Effort Site visit 01 of 12
Session: 01/05/2021, 06:00 to 11:00hrs
Notes: The first CES session since 2019.  Due to covid restrictions we were unable to do any ringing on the LNR in 2020 as by the time we could, in July, the net rides were overgrown and could not be cleared as birds were still nesting. At today session we “controlled” a Sedge Warbler that had been ringed in France. It will be interesting to see where and when though it could be sometimes before we know as the French schemes have a reputation for being slow to respond with ringing details. Also, a Garden Warbler, the first ringed this year. Good enjoyable session.
Present: JL,DL,JHW,IW
Weather: Sunny, light breeze, cold.
Nets: 256metres in 3 rides of 198M, 30M, 28M up from 06:30 to 10:00hrs
