CES 7 – Kenfig NNR

with No Comments

This morning Chris Newberry joined forces with Heather Coats to undertake CES 7 at Kenfig NNR.
The visit continued the run of poor bird numbers – as with every session
this year the numbers are down on a poor year last year.

The total of 12 birds compared with an average of 54 for session 7 since the CES started
in 1997.
For the record it was: 5 Reed Warblers, 3 Blackcaps, 2 Robins, 1 Cetti’s Warbler and 1 Chiffchaff.
The highlight of such a poor show was a 1JJ Reed Warbler which must have been caught
on its maiden flight as it wasn’t tall enough to have walked into the
nets. Almost all the primaries were in pin.
