Oxwich Marsh feeding station

The first ringing session at a small winter feeding station recently set up was reasonably successful this morning with a total of 15 Reed Bunting being netted, this being a UK BAP priority species. Two Marsh Tit and a late Reed Warbler [both shown above] were also notable captures. 65 Reed Buntings were ringed at this site over summer months and the project aims to reveal more about the Reed Bunting population in the marsh as the season progresses.
