Haze netting 19/8/22


After a variety of terminations for different factors, 3 participants of the Team handled an efficient session at the Colyford Typical end of the Wetlands on Friday 19th August. The catch was mainly of birds hatched this year, with just one grown-up among the 37 birds, that being a Reed Warbler. 

A Lot Of Blackcaps & & Blackbirds were captured, mainly from an internet collection in between shrubs where a lot of ripe Blackberries were offering a yummy buffet. All hatched this year, the Blackcaps were in different phases of growth, lots of still with their adolescent head plumes, and also therefore not able to be sexed. As soon as the brand-new head plumes begin to expand, it’s feasible to see whether the bird is male or women, also if simply a little tuft of brand-new plume shows up. 


Blackcap hatched this year. 

A close examination of the head reveals a plume beginning to arise, and also as it’s brownish, this bird is a woman.  A male bird would certainly be expanding black plumes. 


There were various Greenfinch on website, and also 3 juveniles were captured, 2 ladies and also a man. 


Juvenile Greenfinch


This Greenfinch is a woman, as revealed by the slim yellow verge on the Main plumes. In the man, the yellow band would certainly be much larger.



The age of a Reed Warbler is figured out by the top quality and also problem of the quill. This is an adolescent, as revealed by the great problem of the plumes. A grownup would certainly look a lot more used. 


Juvenile Environment-friendly Woodpecker. Potentially a woman as no red shows up in the malar red stripe (dark location behind the reduced jaw) although this bird was not sexed as it was still really young and also red might still show up.

A  adolescent Typical Whitethroat. It had buffy sides to the external tail plumes (not noticeable in this picture).  A grownup would certainly have pure white on the external tail plumes.
