The first ringing session this month at South Milton Ley. A frosty start with very few migrants visible eventually warmed up and produced 21 birds, 12 of which were new. These included my first two Willow Warblers of the year plus 2 Blackcaps and 2 Cetti’s.

It’s a foolish birder who relies on leg colour alone to separate Willow Warbler from Chiffchaff in the field but when you see legs this colour in the net it’s a safe bet it won’t be a Chiff!
