Stanwell Moor - 1 August 2012

A moderate evening session with two new Cetti's Warblers, a female and juvenile and a Blue Tit from 2009, plus a couple of Sand Martins at roost, bringing the evenings total to 15. An area that normally only floods late winter in January or February is very wet and holding a few duck and waders, such as Lapwing and the odd Green Sandpiper, had 50 odd House martins feeding over it, which well be worth another look at sometime.Unfortunately it is a little bit to far from the main ringing area to be left unattended without more than the two of us.

Totals: 11 (4)

Sand Martin - 2
Cetti's Warbler - 2
Sedge Warbler - 1
Reed Warbler - 2 (2)
Blackcap - 2
Chiff-chaff - 1
Great Tit - 1
Blue Tit -0 (1)
Long-tailed Tit - 0 (1)
