A Cetti's Warbler

On Saturday 25/08/08 along with two other members of the Ivel Ringing Group we caught the second juvenile Cetti's Warbler of the year on this site (proving breeding for the species in Bedfordshire for the first time). Luck was on my side - I put the ring on!

Above: The Cetti's Warbler can be identified by counting the tail feathers - it only has 10 tail feathers (12 is the norm).

Above: Trying to take flight!
