It was the best day of the year so far for catching Willow Warblers. They were caught using mist nets which support the bird in a natural position until they are extracted by our trained staff for ringing (c) Richard Brown

Large numbers of white wagtails continue to pass through, 
with at least 30 on Solfach in the afternoon.
