The catch was relatively varied, with sixteen species trapped. The breakdown was as follows:
The highlights of the catch were the migrant warblers. Two reed warbler and two sedge warbler were trapped: one of the reed warblers was a returnee from 2013 (having wintered in sub-Saharan Africa). None showed significant residual fat deposits. In addition, we captured a few blackcaps and a very nicely marked willow warbler.
The showiest bird was a kingfisher. This is the second bird to be caught at the site since ringing recommenced in 2013. The bill colouration indicated that it was a female (approximately two-thirds of the lower mandible is orange in females – in males at least two-thirds is black).
