Breeding birds

A nice morning, calm with a bit of cloud produced a moderate 13 new birds; these included a Redstart, a Marsh Warbler, 2 Whitethroats, 2 Willow Warblers and 2 Icterine Warblers - plus a Swedish control Icky with a nice shiny, new looking ring.

The first juvenile Linnets and Starlings of the year were also caught this morning.   The Starling wasn't impressed!
Hans, Louis and myself then spent a very pleasant few hours surveying the breeding birds out on Rødsand where we found good numbers of seabirds with eggs and chicks  - looks like a productive year out there!
