CES 11

Wednesday, August 19th 2020

The penultimate CES (Constant Effort Site) bird ringing session for 2020 took place last weekend. Over 150 birds were processed including two juvenile Whitethroats. These medium sized warblers spend the winter in Africa, leaving the UK in early October and heading as far as South Africa.

Another highlight for the team was this juvenile male Sparrowhawk.

Sparrowhawks are small birds of prey. They're adapted for hunting birds in confined spaces like dense woodland, so parts of the reserve are ideal hunting grounds for them.
