Should have got a job on the bins

A mornin' on the nets and another three figure haul of Sedge Warbler. Two bore rings from afar, or not so afar, they weren't our rings anyhow,... oh, the excitement of it all.

Very little on the newish patch of cut reed, just Beardies and Sedgies feeding around the edge, surely a Spotted Crake will potter out at some stage*. The only other 'just-about-notables' were a flyover Tree Pipit, a few Yellow Wags and a Marsh Harrier.

* Dear reader, please be aware that the phrase 'some stage' in this instance should be taken to mean anytime in the next 25 years.
