Back of the Net

This juvenile Barred Warbler found it's way in to Tony Martin's mist net in his garden close to the Ouse Washes on Monday.  There have been 2 other recent Barred Warblers in the Ely10, one in a back garden in Fordham and a bird photographed at the Ouse Washes RSPB visitor centre.

In the past couple of years several Wrynecks and the county's first Little Bunting have also been trapped by Tony in his wonderful wetland project.  It just goes to prove what a great bit of habitat he's created and what we're missing moving through the area.  I've have taken the liberty of snipping the pics from the Canbridge Bird Club website.
