Axe Tidewater Buzzing Team: Haze netting 27/8/22


On Friday, 3 participants of the Team established 5 webs at the Exploration Hut. It was a rather silent session as we just handled to capture 24 birds. It was likewise a rather agonizing session as a result of some widespread & & relentless nettles & & shrubs in the internet flights. We had a wonderful selection of birds, with 13 various varieties, although unlike the last session, we had a rather even split of grownups as well as juveniles.

It was terrific to capture an adolescent Sedge Warbler, the Team’s initial this year. All Sedge Warblers undertake a total moult in their wintering quarters in Africa, so a grown-up bird would certainly look extremely used, having had its plumes for more than 6 months, in contrast to the brand-new plumes of a lately fledged bird. An adolescent likewise normally has a ‘pendant’ of dark places around it’s bust.
