Ringing today produced 5 Willow Warblers, 3 Chiffchaffs, 8 Blackcaps, 2 Reed Warblers and 4 Sedge Warblers, along with some resident species. Amazed to read of the Swallow passage at Hartland - they all seem to have by-passed the marshes at Velator and the Great field! Had a report of a Grasshopper Warbler reeling at Down End (Saunton Down).
