Teifi - Warblers

Following a long weekend away to Portland Bird Obs on a Teifi Ringing Group trip..
... now back to our PATCH !
A good start with three singing Lesser Whitethroats in the Poppit dunes.
A circuit of the Marsh produced a singing Sedge Warbler, 5 Cetti's, 16 Willow, 13 Chiffchaff and 2 Blackcap. No hoped for Garden or Reed Warbler, though Gary had a Garden Warbler yesterday on the reserve.
Hirundines last night included c30 House Martins with 100+ Sand Martins, and 60+ Swallows.
c60 Wagtails came to roost mostly White Wagtails.
