We have not really had an unexpected bird this year to date. Jack snipe and green woodpecker are probably the closest, but we know they occur on the marsh with regularity during the winter / throughout the year respectively, with catching them being the challenge. This time last year we had just caught our one and only wood warbler during an otherwise unremarkable session! Highlights of today were two new sedge and one new reed warbler.
