A lot of effort for nuffin'

Another morning's ringing at Uskmouth; Blackcap and Chiffchaff were pretty dominant but a few Reed and one Sedge also rocked up in the nets. The Blackcaps included a partially albino bird with P1-3 on the left wing completely white and a partially white tip to P4. Movement overhead was pretty disappointing, only one Tree Pipit and a handful of Grey Wagtails made looking up worthwhile. I did hear a couple of snatches (yes, I said snatches) of Lesser Whitethroat song coming from the vague direction of Farmfield Lane, I'm assuming it was the real thing and not an MP3-toting 'birder'.
