Kenfig NNR – CES 9

with No Comments

Heather, Chris and I made the best of the good weather to undertake the ninth CES – Constant Effort Site – session of 2013 at the Kenfig National Nature Reserve. We decided to supplement the 108 metres of mist-netting in the pool with an extra 30 metres in the nearby scrub which turned out to be a good idea as the additional nets produced the more birds.

Male Bullfinch

The usual CES nets produced six Reed Warblers, two Wrens, a Blackcap, a Willow Warbler, a Sedge Warbler, a Bullfinch, a Robin and a Whitethroat. The additional nets produced eight Blue Tits, four Great Tits, four Willow Warblers, two Whitethroats, a Reed Warbler, a Treecreeper, a Sedge Warbler, a Bullfinch, a Dunnock, and a Blackcap.
