A big dose of Sedge Warblers down at the reserve this morning (about 150 processed amongst a catch of nearly 200 birds), one of which appeared to be undertaking an unusually extensive post-breeding moult. The standard partial post-breeding moult in Sedge Warblers involves the replacement of body feathers only, this bird obviously had other ideas,...
The bird was showing a limited amount of body moult and no moult in the tail, as would be expected.
Presumably this moult will be suspended and the bulk of the secondaries (plus tertials and tail) replaced in the winter quarters.
