Ringing Warblers and Shooting Swifts

We had the nets up today with Mike and caught a few warblers. More Reed and Sedge Warblers now. We still haven't managed to catch the Cetti's.
Plenty of migrants still about which have been around for the last few days during this easterly spell: 9 Wheatears, 3 Whinchat, 20+ Yellow Wagtail, 5+ Common Sandpiper and lots of hirundines. The weather is forecasted to improve tomorrow so maybe the migrants will be on their way.
